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.
