Policy Watch: US Fiscal Health - Addressing the Pandemic Debt
MAY 20, 2021
Even before the pandemic, the near-historic US debt burden was growing faster than the economy, which is not sustainable. The federal budget debt problem threatens economic stability and will slow economic growth. To address the devastating economic impact of COVID-19, the federal government has incurred substantial costs to keep the economy afloat. Simply adding that debt to the record levels that were already anticipated as of the next few years creates a seemingly unbearable burden.
Join the discussion to understand better the implications of the debt and deficits burdens facing the US and learn more about a manageable approach to set the US on a sustainable post-pandemic economic course.
Who Should Attend: Business executives and public policy experts interested in learning more about the post-pandemic economy, the impact of US debt and deficits on economic growth, as well as solutions to these challenges.
