“The U.S. economy has been hit hard by COVID-19, causing a sudden, sharp loss of employment and an enormous spike in government debt. Even before the pandemic hit, however, the economy and the federal budget faced difficult long-term challenges,” said Robert L. Bixby, executive director of the nonpartisan Concord Coalition. “In the coming months, policymakers will need to focus on getting our nation back on its feet while also putting it on a sustainable long-term path. We are privileged to have these top experts sharing their insights on the key issues that must be addressed and policy options that may exist for finding solutions.”
“State and local government officials, legal experts, policymakers, economists, and concerned citizens and taxpayers would all benefit from the collective wisdom and experience of these leading experts,” said John Greabe, professor of constitutional law and director of the Rudman Center. “We are grateful this panel has come together to address our nation’s most pressing economic challenges, and take questions submitted by attendees. And we are especially grateful to the Peter G. Peterson Foundation for generously supporting this event.”
