The Bush Institute Hosts Tax Summit to Encourage Growth

March 23, 2012 1 minute Read by Amity Shlaes

The obstacles that keep the U.S. from zooming are familiar: reduced hope, poor policy. When the tax rates, state or federal, go up this year, as they are slated to, they will impede recovery further. That is why Steve Forbes and FORBES magazine are teaming up with the George W. Bush Institute to hold a conference in New York in April that will focus on taxes and growth. Rather than starting with theory, this conference will examine the evidence found in our states. Some high-tax states, such as Massachusetts, grow fast. But generally those states that grow fast and gain population have lower tax regimes.

Bush Institute. Find her on Twitter @AmityShlaes
