The Effects of Tax Structure on Economic Growth

Hometown: Dalian, China

Department: Economics

Advisor: Carl Moody


Tax policy is one effective way government adopts to regulate country's economy. However, each kind of tax impacts the economy differently. This research examines the effect of tax structure on economic growth. The objective is to develop a regression model based on the data across the Reagan tax reform to analyze how tax changes influenced the economy in the short run and in the long run. Furthermore, the research will forecast the effect of Trump's tax reform on economic growth.
