Intro: Describe briefly Bonus Depreciation, Short-run solution, not long-run: Because of bonus depreciation, businesses will move up some of the investment in the current year then sit back in the next year and wait for the next round of the generous tax cuts. However, how does Congress know in which year to discourage investment? Moreover, bonus depreciation only lowers tax liability and boosts cash flow in the first year, but it increases payments in future years. Bonus depreciation is a beneficent tax cut, yet it still has some defects that need to be improved. Reason #1: More capital, less labor: Bonus depreciation allows businesses to take a large amount of tax deductions from the new equipment they buy. Since this benefits businesses, they will invest more money in equipment instead of hiring laborers-which in turn keeps unemployment rate at the very high level of 9.5%. Also, bonus depreciation costs the US government over $200 billion a year, this money could easily be put toward solutions

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
