The battle for the future of Ukraine rages on. Despite a ceasefire negotiated in Minsk in September, in Donetsk and Luhansk in Eastern Ukraine, separatists supported by Russia continue to fight Ukrainian forces. Recently, the Russian military has again directly intervened across the border in support of the rebels. Recent elections in the two regions, won by Russian supported candidates, were described by Ukrainian President Poroshenko as a “farce.” As winter approaches, Ukrainians will be dependent for heat on Russian energy supplies, at rapidly escalating prices. What are the Obama administration, the European Union and NATO doing to support Ukraine’s national and territorial integrity? What does the winter hold for Ukrainians? Please join us to hear three eminent experts analyze the latest developments and evaluate the situation in Ukraine.

The current tax system imposes high marginal tax rates on work, and its treatment of savings and investment is destructive. The current system distorts economic activity and impedes economic progress. In economics terms, the current tax system has a massive excess burden or deadweight loss. Tax reform offers the prospect of dramatically reducing this deadweight loss, leading to a renewed prosperity and substantially improved living standards for all Americans. Join us as our speakers explain why the tax system is economically destructive, what kinds of tax reform would fix the problem and what the magnitude of the economic gains from tax reform could be.
