Will Corporate Tax Cuts Benefit the Rest of Us?

Guest: Mihir Desai, PhD, Professor of Finance, Harvard Business School, Professor of Law, Harvard Law School, Author, “The Wisdom of Finance” Republicans in Congress have released their tax plan. It adjusts the current income tax brackets so that more middle-earners will qualify for a lower tax rate. It also boosts the standard deduction and child tax credit, but limits some popular deductions people can claim.  The heart and soul of the plan, however, is a permanent cut in the corporate tax rate. Republicans and the Trump administration are convinced the best way to turbocharge the US economy and get more money in the pockets of workers, like you and me, is to lower taxes businesses pay on their income. According to public polls, the American people are not so sure cutting corporate taxes is a good deal for them.

(Originally aired Mar. 29, 2017) Guest: Efraim Benmelech, PhD, Professor of Finance, Northwestern University The man suspected of driving a pickup into a crowd in New York this week, killing 8 people, has been charged with terrorism offenses. He told investigators he was inspired by Islamic State videos and police say one of the suspect’s phones contained dozens of videos and images that appear to be ISIS-related propaganda.  ISIS has proven particularly savvy at using the internet to recruit people to its cause. The US and European countries are investing heavily in efforts to counter ISIS recruitment and prevent would-be martyrs from radicalizing.
