The Murphy Institute and the Department of Economics at Tulane University will host a one-day conference titled Reforming State and Local Tax Systems on October 23, 2015 at the InterContinental Hotel in Downtown New Orleans.
This conference will explore new research on state and local tax reforms, including empirical, experimental, and theoretical contributions, in the face of increasing challenges in areas such as the growth of services and internet sales, increased tax competition, greater factor mobility across state (and national) boundaries, and other similar developments. This conference was organized by James Alm and Steven Sheffrin. Below are the presenters and the papers that will be discussed at the conference:
Papers presented at the conference will be published in a special issue of Public Finance Review, subject to the normal refereeing process.
Established in memory of Charles H. Murphy, Sr. (1870-1954), and inspired by the vision of Charles H. Murphy, Jr. (1920-2002), The Murphy Institute exists to help Tulane faculty and students understand economic, moral, and political problems we all face and think about. More important, it exists to help us understand how these problems have come to be so closely interconnected.
