Gabriel Zucman hearing before the US Senate Budget committee

On March 25th 2021, Gabriel Zucman, Associate Professor of Economics at the University of Berkeley and co-director of the World Inequality Lab, testified before the US Senate Budget committee on the need for a fairer US tax system. On this occasion, he demonstrated how a more progressive tax system is essential for the federal state to build a more sustainable society, through the funding of public services such as education, health and infrastructure. The hearing took place as US president Joe Biden, who came into office in January 2021, announced an ambitious federal public investment plan and support for an international minimum corporate tax for multinational corporations.
