Interview with Robert Barro
From The Tax Foundation comes this Tax Policy Podcast. In it Robert Carroll talks with Robert Barro, the Paul M. Warburg Professor of Economics at Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Professor Barro is also a senior fellow of the Hoover Institution at Stanford University and a research associate of the National Bureau of Economic Research. The discussion is about the recently passed federal stimulus package and Barro focuses his criticism on both the spending and tax provisions in the stimulus legislation, and makes some recommendations to lawmakers regarding permanent changes to the tax code that could spur long term incentives.
