Think tank: FinReg and regulators; Wyden-Gregg; and fiscal multipliers during a financial crisis
1) Douglas Elliott at Brookings looks at the decisions regulators will have to make after FinReg passes.
2) Arloc Sherman and Chad Stone at the Center for Budget and Policy Priorities analyze CBO data that shows the gap between the richest 1% and the middle and poorest quintiles tripled from 1979 to 2007:
3) Jim Nunns and Jeff Rohaly at the Tax Policy Center show that the Wyden-Gregg tax reform proposal is roughly revenue neutral, and more progressive than the current tax code.
4) Giancarlo Corsetti, André Meier and Gernot J. Müller find that government spending multipliers are modest most of the time, but quite large in financial crises.
5) Fredrik Carlsson, Mitesh Kataria, Alan J. Krupnick, Elina Lampi, Åsa Lofgren, Ping Qin, Susie Chung, and Thomas Sterner at Resources for the Future find that ordinary Swedes are more willing than Americans to pay for climate change action, while Americans are more willing to pay than the Chinese.
