Edward Kleinbard was quoted on why the GOP's tax reform bill may not encourage more investment by corporations. The bill features “a very top-heavy distribution,” said Kleinbard. The markets “are awash in capital today, and there’s not a sign of needing more investment.”
"Does Colorblind Conservative Constitutionalism Have a Grassroots History?", Law and Social Inquiry.
"Are Law Degrees as Valuable to Minorities?", International Review of Law & Economics.
Edward Kleinbard wrote an op-ed, "A Grand Bipartisan Bargain on Tax Reform: A Levy on Carbon Would Satisfy Democrats, While Republicans Would Get Far Lower Corporate Rates", posted to The Wall Street Journal on Sept. 24, 2017.
