While much of the recent debate about the U.S. debt ceiling centered on spending cuts, debt and deficits can also be addressed through raising revenue. One source of government revenue is taxes on corporations. What are the arguments for raising the corporate tax rate? What would be the effects of higher corporate taxes? A substantial increase in revenues? A fairer tax system? Reduced entrepreneurship? Greater offshoring? Lower wages? And which companies would be affected by higher taxes? Kimberly Clausing joins EconoFact Chats to discuss these issues.

Kim is the Eric M. Zolt Professor of Tax Law and Policy at the UCLA School of Law.
