The Urban-Brookings Tax Policy Center invites you to a discussion on America’s debt and how we can better invest in the future. William Gale, the co-director of the Urban-Brookings Tax Policy Center, will present an overview of his new book, “Fiscal Therapy: Curing America’s Debt Addiction and Investing in the Future,” as part of the fourth annual Lubick Symposium. In his book, Gale explains that America faces two distinct but related challenges that policymakers must address in the coming years: tackling rising government debt while also restructuring taxes and spending for a more equitable and growth-oriented society. A keynote address and panel discussion will deepen the conversation by addressing the following:How should we respond to growing fiscal challenges and still build a better future for ourselves, our children, and future generations?How can the government control entitlement spending while fighting poverty and enhancing social insurance?What policy measures could raise investment in human and physical capital, boost economic mobility, and reduce inequality?How should we reform taxes and raise revenues to finance government?A light breakfast will be served starting at 9:30 a.m.

Europe remains in flux. The implications of populism, political fragmentation, and the upending of traditional political paradigms in many countries are not yet fully understood. Europe remains in flux. The implications of populism, political fragmentation, and the upending of traditional political paradigms in many countries are not yet fully understood. The United Kingdom is leaving the European Union, and the continent continues to grapple with the repercussions of large-scale migration and the return of great power competition. Threats from Russia and terrorism remain potent, while Europe has only begun to grapple with rising Chinese assertiveness and economic investments. Upcoming European Parliamentary elections in May could be a defining moment. Join us as our panelists assess how EU elections could affect the future of Europe. How are shifting political dynamics in the EU influencing competing visions for Europe’s future? How will the role of the nation state in Europe likely evolve? What do changes to Europe’s political makeup mean for transatlantic relations? What areas of synergy should U.S. policymakers focus on for maximum impact?

What is the potential of impact investing to create impact? A new International Finance Corporation (IFC) report, “Creating Impact: The Promise of Impact Investing,” attempts to answer this question. The appetite for impact investing is gaining momentum due to the growing desire of private investors to show that profit isn’t their only objective: They can do good while doing well. This shift in strategy represents a historic opportunity for the development community to mobilize additional resources to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).The IFC—the largest global development bank focused on the private sector in emerging markets—just completed a comprehensive assessment of the potential global market for impact investing. Although small today, the industry for impact investing could reach trillions. However, many challenges lie ahead, from achieving market returns, to properly measuring impact, to eliminating regulatory obstacles.These topics, as well as findings from the IFC report, will be presented at an event co-hosted by the Global Economy and Development Program at Brookings (Global) and IFC. Following a presentation of the report’s findings, IFC CEO Philippe Le Houérou will speak about his organization’s leveraging role and the fast-changing impact investment landscape. A panel featuring investment firms and scholars of corporate responsibility will follow. Global’s Interim Vice President Homi Kharas will moderate. Time will be set aside to answer questions from the audience.The event will be webcast.

NYU Langone Health is known today for delivering clinical excellence, patient satisfaction, and outstanding safety performance. In less than a decade, the once unprofitable, poorly ranked medical institution turned itself into a global leader in patient centered care—and generated a substantial financial surplus. How did they do it?On April 22, 2019 the USC-Brookings Schaeffer Initiative for Health Policy will host Dr. William A. Haseltine for a discussion on his latest book, “World Class: A Story of Adversity, Transformation, and Success at NYU Langone Health.” Dr. Haseltine, known for his groundbreaking work on HIV-AIDS and pioneering application of genomics to drug discovery with Human Genome Sciences, outlines the “levers of change” that the institution applied and offers an important lesson in delivering effective health care at manageable costs.Join the conversation on Twitter at #WorldClassA light reception will follow the event.

Over 150 million households file their taxes every year. What if tax filers, like those renewing their driver’s license or visiting public assistance agencies, were given the opportunity to register to vote? Innovative research by Brookings Senior Fellow Vanessa Williamson suggests that providing voter registration materials to tax filers can substantially increase registration rates, especially among demographics that have traditionally been underrepresented in the electorate.Since 2010, 25 states have adopted policies that make it harder for eligible citizens to vote. Even in states that have recently eased voter registration requirements, or moved toward automatic voter registration, some citizens may still fall through the cracks. Linking two fundamental civic responsibilities–voting and taxpaying–has the potential to increase democratic participation and government accountability.On April 2, Williamson will release a report on her project, “Filer Voter: An experiment testing voter registration at tax time.” The report details the effect of voter registration campaigns conducted at nonprofit tax preparation sites in Ohio and Texas during the 2018 tax season.After a presentation of her findings, a panel will discuss the report. The conversation will assess the effectiveness of conducting voter registration drives at sites providing free income-tax preparation, how lower-income households are affected by the federal income tax, and how social policy can encourage or discourage civic engagement.Following the conversation, speakers will take questions from the audience

Since 1790, the United States has conducted a once-a-decade census of its population. As we approach 2020, the stakes are increasingly high for cities and regions, which depend on a full, fair, and accurate population count to ensure their fiscal health and political strength.On April 1, one year ahead of Census Day, the Metropolitan Policy Program, in partnership with the National League of Cities Institute, will explore key issues confronting Census 2020. Two panel discussions will probe the technical, political, and funding challenges facing the census at the national level, and how local leaders are forging strategic partnerships and bottom-up initiatives to ensure a complete and accurate count in their communities.Following the panel discussions, speakers will take questions from the audience.
