The growing mobility of capital and labor confronts governments with increasing challenges when relying on traditional tax sources such as personal and corporate income, value-added, and other transaction taxes.  Business and individual mobility can encourage inter-jurisdictional competition as governments use tax incentives, tax concessions, or gaps in administration of multi-jurisdiction cartels to attract investments and jobs that do not have the geographic limitations that were present just a few decades ago.

This conference, hosted by the Center for Business and Economic Research at The University of Tennessee, brought together world-class scholars in accountancy, economics, finance, law, and related fields who share a common interest in the issues that arise from efforts to tax economic activity in the presence of mobility.  The unique panel of experts discussed the issues that unprecedented multi-jurisdictional mobility presents to governments at all levels.

The conference was held at The University of Tennessee, Knoxville, in the Glocker Business Administration Building (now the James A. Haslam Business Building)
