Jared Bernstein on today’s tax reform debate

Jared Bernstein, former chief economic advisor for Vice President Biden, debated tax reform with Elizaebth Malm of the Tax Foundation today at an event [1]co-hosted by the Budget and Tax Center [2], the Civitas Institute [3], and the Institute on Emerging Issues [4]at NC State University.

In a blog post [5]following the event, Bernstein reflected on some of the key themes that came out of the debate, especially the Great Tax Shift [6] proposed by some in the General Assembly that would ask working and low income families to pay more in sales taxes in order to finance income tax cuts for the wealthiest North Carolinians.
