The following thesis outlines the benefits of manufacturing in the United States because of the new Republican tax reform. House Speaker Paul Ryan and President Donald Trump have been proposing large corporate tax cuts, full expensing of capital expenditures, a border adjustment tax, and repatriation of foreign cash flows. These changes will encourage more corporations to manufacture in the USA because the USA will be more globally competitive, a key focus of the Republican administration.


The topic is still a work in progress due to the lack of information. More information will be known throughout the year and the thesis will be updated accordingly.

This thesis is restricted to the Claremont Colleges current faculty, students, and staff.
