Description

Wealth Taxation, Entrepreneurship, and Philanthropy

Entrepreneurs strengthen the economy directly by innovating and taking risks, and indirectly through their contributions to philanthropic organizations. The tax code affects entrepreneurial activity and can encourage or stifle an entrepreneur’s philanthropic giving. At this forum, scholars will discuss new research that examines how estate and inheritance taxes affect entrepreneurship and how income and estate taxes affect the wealthy. A discussion will follow about giving patterns among wealthy entrepreneurs and ways entrepreneurs are engaging in philanthropy in the 21st century. Urban Institute fellow Len Burman will moderate the panel, followed by a question-and-answer session.

Speakers:

  • Shena Ashley, Vice President, Center on Nonprofits and Philanthropy, Urban Institute
  • Jenny Bourne, Chair, Economics Department, Carleton College
  • Robert McClelland, Senior Fellow, Urban-Brookings Tax Policy Center
  • Eugene Steuerle, Institute Fellow, Urban Institute
  • Leonard Burman, Institute Fellow, Urban Institute (moderator)
