Event description

Description

Emmanuel Saez and Gabriel Zucman—economists who revolutionized the study of inequalitypresent a visionary blueprint for tax reform that can allow a more democratic and equal system to prevail. Blending history and cutting-edge economic analysis in their new book, The Triumph of Injustice: How the Rich Dodge Taxes and How to Make Them Pay, Saez and Zucman offer a comprehensive review of America’s tax system, demonstrating how the ultra-rich pay less in taxes while working-class Americans have been asked to pay more. The authors speak about the book, then engage in a discussion of its conclusions with Lily Batchelder, NYU law professor and former deputy director of President Obama’s National Economic Council, and Paul Krugman, Nobel Prize–winning economist, New York Times columnist, and distinguished professor at The Graduate Center. Janet Gornick, professor of political science and sociology and director of the Stone Center at the GC, will moderate.
