Columbia Business School Announces Joint Debate Series with Law School, Richman Center

The dean of Columbia Business School (CBS) will lead a debate next fall about U.S. domestic tax policy as part of a new partnership between Intelligence Squared U.S., a New York City-based debate series, and the Richman Center for Business, Law and Public Policy, a joint venture between CBS and Columbia Law School.

Intelligence Squared, which launched in 2006, is a forum for public discourse based on the idea that there are intellectually respectable viewpoints on both sides of thorny issues. The debate series is recorded for broadcast on NPR and elsewhere and moderated by ABC’s John Donovan.

The Oxford-style debate on domestic tax policy featuring CBS Dean Glenn Hubbard will take place next October in Intelligence Squared’s new midtown Manhattan venue, the Kaufman Center.

Hubbard will be joined by three other panelists – each leading authorities in their areas of expertise – with two arguing for and two arguing against a carefully worded motion. Members of the live audience will be actively engaged in the discussion and will vote both before and after the debate to determine the winner.

Partnership with Intelligence Squared complements the Richman Center’s mission to promote evidence-based public policy and dialogue on emerging policy issues. In addition to events like this debate series, the Richman Center also drives curricular innovations and hosts student activities drawing on the synergies between Columbia’s Business and Law Schools.
