Professor Thomas Cooley is interviewed about the proposed border adjustment tax plan
— January 27, 2017
Excerpt from USA Today -- "Thomas Cooley, an economics professor at New York University and former dean of the university's Leonard N. Stern School of Business, agreed, saying that a stronger dollar could cushion the fallout for retailers and other importers. Still, if the proposal goes into effect, 'there will be winners and losers,' he said, with companies that have U.S.-based factories faring far better than their counterparts that don't. 'In that sense,' Cooley said, the proposed tax change 'encourages domestic investment ... in the U.S.'"
