BU Economics Professor Laurence Kotlikoff on the corporate income tax

BU Economics Professor Laurence Kotlikoff recently published an op-ed piece in The New York Times titled “Abolish the Corporate Income Tax”.

Jobs don’t grow out of thin air, especially well-paying ones. They require, among other things, companies that are willing to operate where you live. Just ask the Seattle-based District 751 of the machinists’ union, which was worried that Boeing will build its new 777X airliner someplace far away where it is cheaper to produce. Last month the union offered contract concessions, as its president explained, to ensure “the long-term success” of Boeing in Washington State. And on Friday, Boeing machinists approved a contract with concessions to keep assembly of the plane in the area.
