Tax Competition and 4% Growth: What the Midwest Can Show the Rest of the Country

September 18, 2012 - September 18, 2012

Competition among the States: Tax policies affect growth, and do so dramatically. Our states are natural laboratories that can demonstrate how tax policies affect economic growth.  At this conference, the George W. Bush Institute took the question of taxes and states to the Midwest, a region of stark policy differences, to ask: which states are doing well, and which policies do they follow? This conference was a continuation of the tax inquiry started this spring by the Bush Institute’s 4% Growth Project.
