Nathan Seegert received his Ph.D. in economics from the University of Michigan where he was a National Science Foundation IGERT fellow at the Center of Complex Systems. His research focuses on corporate taxation and urban growth. Nathan’s research on the distortions of the dividend tax on mergers and acquisitions won Oxford’s Centre for Business Taxation Best Paper by a Young Scholar award. Current research looks at tax revenue volatility caused by state governments changing their tax portfolios, the behavioral responses of corporations to taxation, and the interaction effect of market concentration and fiscal policy on corporate investment responses.
