Economic and political scholars talked about the economy and the “fiscal cliff,” the tax increases and budget cuts impending at the end of 2012 if Congress failed to reach a new budget agreement. They explained three options: 1) do nothing and let tax cuts expire 2) agree to a “grand bargain” 3) do nothing drastic and take time to make the right decision. All agreed not harming the economy took priority over reducing the budget deficit and national debt. A PowerPoint presentation was included. They also answered questions from audience members.
This program was part of the Economists for Peace and Security Bernard L. Schwartz Symposium “Who’s Afraid of the Fiscal Cliff?” It was held in cooperation with New America Foundation’s Economic Growth Program at the Hyatt Regency Washington on Capitol Hill.
