Faculty in the news Dr. Agrawal quoted for WKYT story on Kentucky sales tax changes
Senior faculty member, Dr. David Agrawal, was interviewed by WKYT on changes to Kentucky tax laws in 2022 and what those changes might mean for the state and citizenry.
“We’ve seen basically that the base-broadening efforts by states have not really kept up with the shift from goods toward services,” said Dr. Agrawal. “These are different taxes, and they have different distributional implications. And those are all kind of political and policy decisions that in part the economics literature can shed some light on, but they also involve important judgments by our citizens and politicians in terms of what their values are.”
