Eric Zolt Fire Side Chat
On Monday 15th December 2014 the WU Global Tax Policy Center at the Institute for Austrian and International Tax Law hosted the ninth in the new series of tax policy discussions between Prof. Jeffrey Owens and leading players in the field of tax policy. The "Tax Policy Fire Side Chats" focus on issues which are currently preoccupying governments, business and civil society and enable a wide audience to participate in these policy debates.
Eric Zolt (Michael H. Schill Distinguished Professor of Law at UCLA and former U.S. Treasury Department official) was our guest speaker with Jeffrey. The debate focussed on the growing inequalities within countries but at the same time reducing inequalities between countries, what governments can do to reduce inequalities in the distribution of income and wealth and the tax options that governments have.
