Pro to the question "Does Lowering the Federal Corporate Income Tax Rate Create Jobs?"
"Reducing the corporate tax rate and changing the rules for taxing the foreign earnings of US corporations would have many favorable effects, including an increase of employment in the United States… Reductions in the corporate tax rate can stimulate demand and reduce unemployment during periods of cyclically high unemployment. The lower tax rate increases available net profits that firms can use to finance investment in structures and equipment, leading to increases in employment in those industries."
