Let U.S. go over 'fiscal cliff?'

Jeffrey Cooper

Jeffrey Cooper, a professor in the School of Law who teaches tax policy, urged President Obama to let the United States go over the fiscal cliff.

In a Hartford Courant editorial, Cooper wrote, "I have no desire to cause a fiscal calamity, but I do believe that the current tax policy in Washington is so politicized and the rhetoric so detached from reality that no productive compromise can emerge. We need a fresh start before we can reach any meaningful consensus on future tax policy. The path to this fresh start lies just beyond the fiscal cliff."
