Topic Taxes, Inequality & Growth

Taxes support U.S. living standards by providing the revenues necessary to pay for public investment in children, families, and infrastructure; for social insurance and safety net programs; for national defense; and for many other public programs that support the quality of life. They also influence the level and distribution of income, consumption, wealth, and broader measures of economic wellbeing. Equitable Growth aims to foster a robust discussion of the impact of changes in tax policy on inequality and growth and the wellbeing of families across the income distribution.
