IEA Hosts: A Discussion with Art Laffer: Are International Taxes at a Tipping Point?

17 July 2014, 12.00pm
Brunel & Smeaton Rooms, One Great George Street, London, SW1P 3AA

A discussion with the creator of the Laffer curve

Renowned American economist Dr. Art Laffer leads a lunchtime discussion looking at international economic and fiscal trends. Laffer will examine what is driving governments to increase excise taxes and the impact of these increases on government revenue, consumer demand and private sector growth.

Recognized by Time Magazine in 1999 as one of “The Great Minds of the Century,” Laffer is best known for the Laffer curve, an illustration of the theory that there exists a tax rate between 0% and 100% that will result in maximum tax revenue for governments.

The event will start with a lunch and Professor Laffer will start speaking at 12.30pm sharp. There will be an opportunity for Q&A and the event will finish at 1.30pm promptly.

Here's an ieaTV taster of what to expect from when the IEA last hosted Professor Laffer in 2012:
