7:00pm Eastern Time (4:00pm Pacific)
We have often heard the term Bidenomics to describe President Biden’s economic plans for the United States’ economy. His campaign promises included raising taxes on the wealthy, corporations and estates, expanding tax credits for lower income earners, and exempting individual taxpayers making less than $400,000 from tax increases. This is a distinct change from his predecessor, whose administration emphasized cutting taxes and deregulation. In addition, President Biden has provided a stimulus package designed to help stabilize a struggling economy caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. During this webinar, Dr. Baier will provide an update into the state of the American economy and the possible impact of President Biden’s economic policies.
Following a 50 minute presentation, Professor Baier will take Q&A from the audience. Webinars are scheduled to last 60 minutes.
