Oct. 12: Virtual Forum on Proposition 1 - Fair Share Act

by UAA Institute of Social and Economic Research  |   

Would you like more information about Ballot Measure 1? If so, are not alone. The "Fair Share Act," the initiative to change the State of Alaska’s oil production (severance) tax, has many Alaskans puzzled about how oil taxes work now, how the initiative would change how they work and what issues to think about before voting.

The Anchorage Association for Energy Economists (AAEE) and the University of Alaska Anchorage Institute of Social and Economic Research (ISER) invite you to participate in a live Zoom forum on the ballot measure from noon–1:30 p.m., Monday, Oct. 12.

The forum will feature a panel of energy and tax economists. After short introductions, the bulk of the forum will be an opportunity for voters to ask questions of the panel. This is not intended to be adversarial or partisan toward either side. We will also discuss what is going on in the competitive world of oil investments and how other countries are responding.

The panelists include Mouhcine Guettabi (ISER), Doug Reynolds (University of Alaska Fairbanks), Nikos Tsafos (Center for Strategic and International Studies, Washington D.C., and independent Anchorage economist Roger Marks. The views of the panelists do not represent ISER, the University of Alaska or the AAEE.

The forum will be moderated by Larry Persily, visiting Atwood Chair at the UAA Department of Journalism and Public Communication.
