Roundtable event: The economics and economic policy of corporation tax

The International Economic Association (IEA) and the University of Nottingham invite you to a short online roundtable on the topic of ‘The Economics and Economic Policy of Corporation Tax’.

In July 2021, under the auspices of the OECD, 130 countries issued a joint statement to establish a new international framework for corporation tax. This comprised a reallocation of the rights to tax multinationals across countries, and a global minimum corporate tax rate. However, the reforms remain to be implemented and their precise nature to be defined, while the economic impact of corporation tax remains a controversial subject.

The IEA has assembled two panels of leading economists and policy makers to debate these issues. We hope you can join us.
