Pushing the Limit: Tax Cuts, Spending, and the Outlook for 2018

May 09, 2018 11:00 AM ET [11:00] (New York), 03:00 PM UTC [15:00] | (1 hr) | Time Zone Converter

Congress and the President closed 2017 by enacting a $1.5 billion package of corporate and individual tax cuts, and opened 2018 by authorizing almost $300 billion in additional spending during the next two years.

Join our expert panel of economists and researchers from The Conference Board and the Committee for Economic Development to learn:

  • What do early economic data tell us about how firms and consumers are reacting to the tax cuts?
  • How will rising interest rates and Federal Reserve policy shape corporate investment and the housing market?
  • With labor markets already tight, how effective can these measures be in boosting GDP growth and what will they mean 

Who Should Attend: Anyone seeking to understand what early economic data reveal about the response of businesses to tax cuts and increased federal spending
