The conference will focus, as always, on policy-relevant research bearing on taxation and government spending.

Also on the agenda: a plenary session panel discussion on Capital and Wealth Taxation, moderated by James Poterba (MIT), with distinguished panelists including Henrik Kleven (Princeton University), Wojciech Kopczuk (Columbia University), Beth Kaufman (Caplin & Drysdale), and Jason Furman (Harvard Kennedy School).

The conference includes a short-course education session on Saturday afternoon and many opportunities for graduate students to present their research and network with NTA members.
