Panel Discussion

 Monday, October 22, 2018 – 6.30 p.m.

 The U.S. Consulate General Frankfurt, Allen & Overy LLP, and the American-German Business Club Frankfurt cordially invite you to a panel discussion (in English) titled:

“The U.S. Corporate Tax Reform – Winners and Losers? And What Next?”

After the last German corporate tax reform in 2008, many companies are still critical of the complexity of the tax system, the level of taxation, and the limitations to tax deductions, all of which combined impact negatively on their competitiveness and the general investment climate. They also refer to other countries with tax systems more favorable to corporations. The recent corporate tax reform in the United States is a case in point. We will discuss the impact and outcome of this new legislation and will raise a number of key questions. How much will American companies – and perhaps German companies operating in the U.S. market – benefit from it? How might it influence the job market and prices for goods and services? Will the lowering of corporate taxes in country after country lead to a global race to the bottom, and, if so, what would sinking tax revenues mean for countries’ national debt and capabilities for investment in public infrastructure  which the private sector needs? Come and join us for a discussion of issues of great importance to our economies and societies!

The U.S. Consulate General Frankfurt, the Friedrich-Naumann-Stiftung für die Freiheit, and the Frankfurt School of Finance & Management are extending an invitation to AGBC members & friends to a panel discussion (in English) 

The title of the panel is:

“The Future of Work – The Digital Revolution and Its Consequences“

Facing the digital revolution
Are you ready for the future of work? The digital revolution is affecting all aspects of our lives and transforming economic, social, and political structures. How we face these new challenges and transformations will have profound implications for employees, companies, and our way of life. How will employment patterns, professional qualifications and requirements, and our education system change? Which occupational fields will be affected and how? What consequences would a massive abolition of jobs without substitution have on the living conditions of individuals, families, and our social system? What political implications will the rethinking and redesigning of traditional structures have and how can we prevent a possible destabilization of our political, economic, and social system?

Join us to discuss these and other important questions and issues as we explore how the opportunities and challenges of the digital revolution affect the future of work.
