The Implications of Tax Reform for US Business
Professor Robert Pozen, a tax policy expert and senior lecturer at HBS and MIT Sloan School of Management, has agreed to help us dissect the tax reform.

Last month, President Donald Trump signed a $1.5 billion tax-cut bill in the largest tax reform since 1986. The tax bill made sweeping changes to corporate and individual taxes, with policy implications that are still uncertain. 

With a specific focus on what the newly passed Act means for US corporations and pass-throughs, Professor Pozen will also explain the Act’s different approach to taxing foreign profits of US firms.

Robert C. Pozen is currently a Senior Lecturer at HBS, the MIT Sloan School of Management and a Senior Fellow at the Brookings Institution. In 2004, Bob became the executive chairman of MFS Investment Management, which now manages over $400 billion for mutual funds and pension plans.  Between 2004 and 2010, MFS’s assets under his management doubled.

During his distinguished career, Bob has been active in business, government and academia. Prior to joining MFS, he was vice chairman of Fidelity Investments and president of Fidelity Management & Research Company. During Bob’s five years as president, Fidelity’s assets increased from $500 billion to $900 billion. In late 2001 and 2002, Bob served on President Bush’s Commission to Strengthen Social Security, where he developed a progressive plan to make the system solvent. In 2003, Bob served as Secretary of Economic Affairs for Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney. In 2007, he served as chairman of the SEC's Committee to Improve Financial Reporting.  

Bob is currently an independent director of Medtronic, Nielsen and AMC (a subsidiary of the World Bank). He also serves as chairman of the board of the Tax Policy Center, and on the advisory board of Perella Weinberg Partners. Bob graduated summa cum laude from Harvard College and holds a law degree from Yale, where he also obtained a doctorate for a book on state enterprises in Africa. He lives in Boston with his wife of 37 years.
