Centennial Speakers

Hoover Institution economists have generated many ideas on tax reform and monetary reform over the years, from the Friedman Rule and government spending limits to the Hall-Rabushka Flat Tax and the Taylor Rule. Panelists will discuss the origination of such ideas, how they have been applied in practice in the United States and other countries, and the future of such reform-oriented policy.
