America’s Fiscal Future: Out of the Frying Pan, into the Fire?
Cato Sponsor e‐Briefing
Thursday, August 18, 2011
Noon – 1 p.m. EDT
Featuring a presentation and live discussion with Daniel J. Mitchell, Senior Fellow, Cato Institute; moderated by Caleb O. Brown, Director of Multimedia.
This month’s e‐Briefing features a discussion with Cato senior fellow Dan Mitchell, a leading expert on tax reform. Dan was a senior fellow with the Heritage Foundation, and an economist for Sen. Bob Packwood (R-OR) and the Senate Finance Committee. He will put into context Washington’s recent debt‐ceiling standoff and the subsequent U.S. credit rating downgrade. He’ll also discuss the tax‐and‐spend mentality that has led us to this point and what needs to be done to put our economy back on firm ground.
