B-338 Rayburn House Office Building
Featuring Dan Mitchell, Senior Fellow, Cato Institute and Alan Reynolds, Senior Fellow, Cato Institute.
With the economy in a period of uncertainty, Congress will soon pass an economic stimulus package. But will this package have the desired effect? Will tax rebate checks spur economic growth and create new jobs? Should Congress focus on incentives for businesses? Or would the economy be better off if Congress did nothing?

Please join us as two prominent economists will address these questions and discuss how better fiscal and monetary policies could improve economic conditions.
