    Federal Gasoline Taxes

    Nobody wants to see their gasoline taxes go up, but the federal excise tax on gasoline has remained at 18.4 cents a gallon since 1993. Could it play a role in helping to get tax reform approved and should it be adjusted at least for inflation? Lucian Pugliaresi, Larry Goldstein, and Will Pack take us through a short analysis on the gasoline tax, its upside as a revenue raiser and potential instrument for regulatory reform in the transportation fuels sector and its downside as a regressive tax. The paper can be found here.

    EPRINC and Macroeconomic Advisers are undertaking an assessment of the broad consequences to U.S. investment and economic growth from the rapid decline in oil prices. The attached paper by Joel Prakken of Macroeconomic Advisers examines two important forces at work from  the oil price decline — the expansion of the national economy and the concurrent reduction in investment in oil and gas extraction. The report concludes that the U.S. will likely see an expansion of economic growth, but it is attenuated by about one-third from lower investment in the U.S. petroleum industry.

Larry Goldstein: The Fed Decisively Indecisive

I never thought I would say this, so I won’t. I’ll Write it. I’ve always believed that sunshine is the best antiseptic. You could never have too much transparency. That is until I met this FED. “We’re going to raise rates, but we’re data dependent” “ We are going to raise rates soon”. I guess it depends upon the meaning of what soon is.  (I’m coming to believe it’s sooner or later). They’ve been telling us that for more than six quarters… THE FED DECISIVELY INDECISIVE (5/28)
