Steve Entin has been working with ASSET to help more fully develop the ASSET concept as we get closer to drafting
legislative language. Most Recently Mr. Entin joined Mr. Jack Fitzgerald for the briefing held for Congressional Staff in September 2011.
Mr. Entin was Deputy Assistant Secretary for Economic Policy at the Treasury Department in the Reagan Administration. He prepared economic forecasts for the President’s budgets, and the development of the 1981 tax cuts, including the “tax indexing” provision that keeps tax rates from rising due to inflation. Mr. Entin represented the Treasury Department in the preparation of the Annual Reports of the Board of Trustees of the Social Security System, and conducted research into the long run outlook for the system. He advised the National Commission on Economic Growth and Tax Reform (the Kemp Commission), assisted in the drafting of the Commission’s report, and was the author of several of its support documents.
Prior to joining Treasury, Mr. Entin was a staff economist with the Joint Economic Committee of the Congress, where he developed legislation for tax rate reduction (the Kemp-Roth bill) and incentives to encourage saving. Mr. Entin is a graduate of Dartmouth College and received his graduate training in economics at the University of Chicago, majoring in macroeconomics, monetary policy, and international economics.
