10/17 - Dynamic Scoring the Presidential Candidates’ Tax Proposals

Monday October 17, 2016
9:30am to 10:30am EDT

As we near the 2016 elections, presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump have proposed changes to the US federal tax system. The Penn Wharton Budget Model and the Urban-Brookings Tax Policy Center have collaborated to analyze how the proposed changes of each candidate would affect the economy and the federal budget, using a new dynamic economic model that employs big data, cloud computing and visualization. Two experts will discuss each proposal and the sensitivity of estimates to the key assumptions.


  • Kent Smetters, Boettner professor, Business Economics and Public Policy Department, Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania

  • Ben Page, senior fellow, Urban-Brookings Tax Policy Center
