Colloquium 9/23: Who Should Fund the Government?

On Monday, September 23rd at 3:30 in Math 357, Dr. Keith Hubbard and Dr. Mike Stroup will be talking about “Who Should Fund the Government? Exploring Tax Progressivity.”

Abstract: Tax Progressivity is the degree to which those who make higher incomes pay a higher percentage of their income in tax.  But total income, total tax, and the distribution of both vary from year to year and from country to country. It can be challenging to determine how progressive a particular situation is.  We will look at the mathematics, and the controversy, behind deciding how progressive a particular tax scheme is.
