In this election year, Americans of all political persuasions are pushing back on big institutions from government to business. Meanwhile American businesses are facing increasing competitive pressures from abroad. These two evolving dynamics raise questions about how to promote economic growth while contending with public perceptions about the business sector. For example, how would implementing new economic tools such as business tax reform affect the average American? What does inaction mean for American businesses and workers?

BPC hosted a panel of experts to discuss these questions and examine the tax challenges facing American businesses, and the impact on growth, global competitiveness, and job creation. Following the panel, two political experts explained voter attitudes toward economic reforms, such as a lower business tax rate, and how policymakers can build consensus in this challenging atmosphere.
