Joe Minarik on Fiscal Health

Smart regulations are essential to a well-functioning economy and government. With over 175,000 pages in the Code of Federal Regulations, Americans and businesses are overwhelmed with outdated and redundant policies that burden the economy. In fact, the current maze of regulations comes with a $2 trillion price tag in compliance costs. While Congress and the Administration have identified a need for regulatory and tax reform, there is debate on Capitol Hill about what reforms will be the most effective.

Join Joe Minarik, Senior Vice President & Director of Research at CED, for a discussion on how policymakers should approach regulatory and tax reform and what policies they should prioritize. Joe will set the table for the CED project on regulatory reform, and begin a conversation about the regulatory system, the economic implications of different proposals, and the role that business leaders have in crafting sensible regulations that will create a level playing field and boost the economy.
