After the discussion, panelists will answer questions from the audience. Lunch will be provided.

There is growing interest in the issue of corporate tax reform as a way to boost economic growth and U.S. international competitiveness.  While any comprehensive tax reform involves a multitude of issues, one important issue is the extent to which a reformed tax code should include, or even stress, specific incentives to shape corporate behavior.
