November Madness: Gubernatorial Races and the Debate over Taxes

REMI Webinar


With November's midterm elections looming, several incumbent governors are defending themselves against strong challengers in hard-fought contests. Fierce political battles are brewing in states across the country, and a frequent subject of debate is an always controversial topic - taxes.

Gubernatorial candidates tout their own tax programs, and sometimes their approaches can be starkly different. There is a wide range of ways for states to raise revenue, and each option brings different fiscal and economic implications. Policymakers must navigate the crucial but sometimes competing demands to fund programs, balance budgets, and encourage growth.

For this webinar, we will discuss this year's gubernatorial races, the different types of tax policies being debated, and the potential economic and fiscal impacts of various tax strategies. We will also examine how dynamic economic modeling can simulate the short-term and long-term effects of tax policy.

Finally, you will have a chance to engage in Q&A after the presentation.

This presentation will be approximately one hour in length, and we offer it at no charge via the Citrix GotoWebinar web conferencing platform. Advanced registration is required; please click on one of the links in the sidebar to register online.
