rgf_dan_mitchellTaxes, tax reform, and fiscal policy loom large in public policy-making. As the Cato Institute’s senior fellow specializing in fiscal policy, Dan Mitchell has unparalleled understanding of the breadth and scope of international, U.S., and state tax and fiscal policies and how those issues impact economic growth and overall prosperity.

Join us for lunch with Dan Mitchell and find out what the prospective Trump or Clinton administrations can do to create a more functional tax and fiscal climate. He’ll also offer insights into what Clinton and Trump will actually do to fiscal policy and whether their plans will hasten or forestall a Greek-style economic crisis in America.

Mitchell will also offer his views on state-level fiscal policies and what New Mexico policymakers might do to make the State’s struggling economy more competitive.
