Fiscal Fallout: What Is "Responsible" in Today's Fiscal Reality?

Sen. Orrin Hatch and Robert Greenstein to Keynote

FISCAL FALLOUT: WHAT IS "RESPONSIBLE" IN TODAY'S FISCAL REALITY?

 

A National Journal LIVE Policy Summit

WASHINGTON, D.C., September 11, 2013 -- On Thursday, National Journal will host Fiscal Fallout: What Is "Responsible" in Today's Fiscal Reality?, an in-depth policy summit examining what is being done to solve the nation's long-term debt problem.

A weak economy paired with high levels of government spending has put America on an unsustainable fiscal trajectory. The U.S. is already starting to see the effects, as evident in our weakening dollar, lack of foreign investment, and slowed wage growth; most economists agree that the implications of the growing debt are dire. With one of the most ideologically polarized Congresses of all time in office, can Washington come to a consensus on controlling the nation's growing $16.7 trillion debt?

 

Join National Journal for a policy summit convening members of Congress and other experts to examine what it means to be a responsible leader in today's economy.

First Keynote Speaker:

The Hon. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah), Member, U.S. Senate

Moderated by:

 

Kristin Roberts, News Editor, National Journal

Second Keynote Speaker:

Robert Greenstein, President, Center on Budget and Policy Priorities

Moderated by:

Nancy Cook, Economic and Fiscal Policy Correspondent, National Journal

 

An expert panel discussion will follow the keynote interviews

Featuring:
