After an introduction by Mr. Frum, Mr. Miller talked about his book, The 2% Solution: Fixing America’s Problems in Ways Liberals and Conservatives Can Love, published by PublicAffairs. In the book, Mr. Miller proposes that, by increasing taxes by two cents on every dollar, or 2% of America’s GDP, the country could increase tax revenues by over $200 billion. This money could then be spent on issues like health insurance, education, and employment. Mr. Miller writes that many of the problems facing America could be solved through compromises from both major parties, such as Democrats agreeing to accept market-oriented programs if Republicans agree to provide sufficient funding. Following prepared remarks, he responded to questions and comments from the audience. close
