Big Tech Ad Revenue in Maryland

A new tax has entered the national landscape with Maryland’s approval of their proposed tax on the advertising revenue generated by big tech companies in the state. This legislative initiative holds the potential to increase state revenues while also prompting a structural shift for companies like Facebook, Google, and Amazon.

Associate I Julian Cook and Economic Analyst Haozheyi Guan will be hosting a REMI webinar presentation, “Big Tech Ad Revenue in Maryland,” on Monday, April 19th from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m. (ET) that analyzes the economic impacts of this new legislation within the state. The effectiveness of this new policy in Maryland might indicate whether or not other states will begin adopting similar measures in the future.

This discussion will evaluate the lasting economic benefits related to the increase in state revenue, with the new funds being allocated directly to the education system. Our presenters will also be considering the ways in which big tech could shift their business models and the corresponding effects to local businesses within the state.

Included in this upcoming webinar will be a demonstration on how to forecast the long-term effects of a tax on big tech ad revenue at the state and local levels using the REMI model.

Following the webinar, there will be an opportunity for questions and answers.

The presentation will be approximately one hour in length, and we offer it free of charge via the Citrix GoToWebinar web conferencing platform. Advanced registration is required; please click here to register.

Biden’s $3 Trillion Infrastructure Plan

The White House has announced their American Jobs Plan, a long-awaited infrastructure package that President Biden believes is a “once-in-a-generation investment in America” that would resemble the influx of federal funding during the space race more than half a century ago.

On Thursday, April 22nd from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m. (ET), REMI Associate I Julian Brubaker and Economic Analyst Xiaochu Ma will be providing a webinar presentation, “Biden’s $3 Trillion Infrastructure Plan,” that measures the economic impacts of several policy proposals within the president’s infrastructure bill.

This presentation will evaluate the lasting economic benefits of revamped infrastructure in order to determine if they will outweigh the potential harms of an increased corporate tax rate. We are also prepared to examine the debate surrounding the “human infrastructure” elements of the plan and analyze whether they will be substantial enough to mitigate poverty, the climate crisis, and racial inequality in this country.

Feel free to join our presenters for this webinar that demonstrates how the REMI model simulates the widespread ramifications of the American Jobs Plan at the national, state, and local levels.

Following the webinar, there will be an opportunity for questions and answers.
