Faculty Panel on Budget Options for the U.S.

This panel discussed the choices the United States faces in trying to fix our long-term federal budget problems. The faculty explored the tradeoffs of adjusting taxes versus changing spending and provided some principles to use in judging alternative proposals.

Panelists were professors Steven Davis, John Huizinga, and Harald Uhlig. Anil Kashyap moderated.

This event was part of the Initiative on Global Markets (IGM) and is generously sponsored by Myron Scholes.

This IGM also receives financial support from our corporate partners: AQR Capital Management, John Deere, and Northern Trust.
