”The simulation that will be unveiled on Saturday is designed to further the purpose of avoiding a false understanding of what tax reform is and why it is important,” Dr. Ries said. “It will put each of us, as taxpayers, in the drivers’ seat and allow us to consider the tradeoffs and outcomes for yourself.”
Professor Ries joins Wall Street Journal writer Stephen Moore, JunkScience and Fox News Contributor Steve Milloy and nearly two dozen public policy experts on a dozen panels related to solving Georgia’s energy needs relative to government regulations, public education reform relative to Georgia’s poor graduation rates and promoting jobs and economic growth through economic freedom principles.
