Nov 14

Kaplan Family Library DC 218

David A. Kennett, Interim President of Mount Saint Mary CollegeDr. David A. Kennett, President of Mount Saint Mary College and an accomplished economist, will present “Tough Talk on Taxes” on Tuesday, November 14 at 7 p.m. at the college.

The talk, free and open to the public, will take place in the Kaplan Family Library and Learning Center, room 218, in the Dominican Center at the Mount, 330 Powell Ave., Newburgh. All are welcome.

A focal point of the Trump administration’s agenda is cutting taxes, and President Trump has promised “the biggest ever in our country tax cut.” Dr. Kennett will address, with comparative data, how such a policy conforms with America’s tax burden and structure. He will also discuss the likely effects of the cuts of corporate and income taxes if they become law.

Dr. Kennett is an accomplished author and frequent speaker on economic topics. He has authored four books and monographs to date on various economic issues around the world and numerous articles, papers, and speeches on global economic issues.

Dr. Kennett served at Vassar College beginning in 1976, with his most recent role being the Elizabeth Stillman Williams Professor of Economics. He has been a sought-after visiting professor at many colleges and universities around the world, an author of many books and papers, a frequent speaker, and a consultant providing his economic expertise to a broad range of both private and public organizations, including the U.S. Justice Department and The World Bank.

The lecture is sponsored by the Mount Saint Mary College Office of the President, the Kaplan Family Library, the First Year Experience Program, and the iROC Seminar Series.
