Default Report: GOP Tax Framework Could Raise GDP By 5%, Wages By 7%

Report: GOP Tax Framework Could Raise GDP By 5%, Wages By 7%

President Donald Trump's tax reform framework could raise GDP by as much as 5 percent and wages by as much as 7 percent, according to a new study from Boston University economists.

"We find that, depending on the year considered, the new Republican tax plan raises GDP by between 3 and 5 percent and real wages by between 4 and 7 percent," the economists explain. "This translates into roughly $3,500 annually more annual real take-home pay for the average American household."

Economists believe this growth can happen due to the plan's aim to reduce the marginal effective corporate tax rate from 34.6 percent to 18.6 percent, which they believe will grow the capital stock by 12 to 20 percent.

While critics of the plan have said the tax cuts will add costs to the economy, the Boston University economists say the plan is essentially revenue neutral due to the economy's expected expansion. They point out that closing corporate tax loopholes helps keep the plan revenue neutral and increased revenues are a result of broadening the tax base.

The study also says every American can benefit from this tax reform framework.

"The [Unified Framework] tax reform delivers small increases in lifetime welfare to current retirees and moderate ones to workers and future generations," the study states. "All generations benefit from the policy. The old benefit slightly from higher rates of return on their investment, and the young from higher wages."

The Boston University study is similar to the findings from the Council of Economic Advisers study put out earlier this week, which said that the average household income could increase by $4,000 annually if the corporate tax rate was cut from 35 percent to 20 percent.
I didn't put this up to tout the study...

I put this up to show how much of a difference there can be from one "study" to another "study"...

I've shown deception in a recent report, which just shows anyone can get to the end result they want by manipulating the facts...

The lack of replies from our Trump hating members is telling. Only so-called experts who conform to their political beliefs are to be given credence.
What is a 30 something year old single man with a rock in one hand and a Honduran flag in the other?

An asylum seeker.
