As part of the "fiscal cliff" negotiations, politicians are fighting over how to extract more money from the productive sector to finance bigger government. This is bad news for fiscal policy, particularly since the fallback option is to dive off the cliff with automatic tax increases. Cato senior fellow Dan Mitchell will provide an update on what's happening in Washington and explain what should be done to block class-warfare tax policy and restrain the growing burden of government spending.

This special online-only series is an opportunity to hear from Cato's policy staff. Please note that it is not necessary to download any software to watch the briefing online; no reservation is necessary.
