NEW YORK, NY – November 1, 2013 – The Robert Zicklin Center for Corporate Integrity at Baruch College will present a public lecture by former U.S. Congressman Bob Inglis, titled “Putting Free Enterprise to Work on Energy and Climate.” Inglis, who is the director of the Energy and Enterprise Initiative (E & EI), will speak about climate change and how free enterprise can help solve the U.S. energy and climate challenges.
Inglis will explain that the E & EI proposed solution is through a true cost comparison between competing fuels and a revenue-neutral tax swap that shifts taxes off of income and capital and onto carbon dioxide. The free enterprise system, he argues, would deliver innovation faster and more efficiently than government mandates, incentives or regulations, and drive economic growth.
