Border adjustment is a clever idea in terms of tax policy. But there are a lot of macroeconomic side effects. I don't think people have really thought those through. I would not go the border adjustment route, as sympathetic as I am to the idea. Closing loopholes and moving to an international minimum tax would provide some revenue. If the goal is revenue neutrality, then getting the rate down to 28 percent might be possible. But the 15 percent or 20 percent rate proposed by the Trump campaign and House Republicans, respectively, would be impossible without massively raising the deficit.feedback

The two most important are revenue neutral [and] distribution neutral. In other words, make the tax system more efficient without collecting any less money or shifting the burden. Focus on how to collect the same amount of taxes from roughly the same people. But just do it in a better way. Then just be technocratic about it and figure out way to collect those taxes. Do it the way Ronald Reagan did. Corporations move in response to tax rates much more than individuals do.feedback

The president is happy any time you can save a job, any time you can add a job. He's also very happy about what he did on the auto industry that saved a million jobs there.

With today's report, the unemployment rate is falling as fast as at any point in the last 30 years, and the economy is on pace for its best year of job growth since the late 1990s.
