As Barack Obama begins the fourth year of his presidency, what is the real state of our union? The president’s policies have left us with continued high unemployment, difficult fiscal realities, ongoing wars, concerns over civil liberties, and general economic malaise. But do Republicans offer any better ideas? Join us for a discussion with Cato experts on what can be done with entitlement, fiscal, legal, and financial policy to solve these problems and promote limited government and economic growth.
