Presentation Title: Taxes, Spending, and State Economic Growth

Section: Poster Session Group 2 2

Location: , Great Hall

Date & Time: Friday, April 19, 2013 - 2:45pm - 3:30pm


The goal of this project is to investigate whether taxation policies directly influence economic growth. Most economic theories suggest that higher taxes result in lower economic growth, however, past empirical studies have shown mixed results regarding the issue. This project uses statistical analyses of taxation and expenditures data from the 48 contiguous states over the time period of 1997 to 2011 to test for the effects of certain fiscal policies on economic growth.  The project also presents a review of past empirical studies regarding taxation and economic growth. A key contribution of this project is its analysis of state-level taxation during the Great Recession.
