April 2022, Audio: "In this episode of All Else Equal, hosts Jules van Binsbergen and Jonathan Berk discuss the flaws of the corporate income tax with former Treasury Secretary Lawrence Summers, who argues for retaining the tax. Summers explains why taxing corporations is one of the most effective tools the federal government has in making sure the wealthy pay their fair share. Might there be room for improvement? Yes, Summers says, but don’t abolish it. “Before we are critical of that tax, we better make awfully sure that we have a superior alternative.”" Listen Via the Stanford Graduate School of Business on Youtube
