Policy Director Joshua Gordon speaks to the annual meeting of the Ohio Association of Economists and Political Scientists on a panel entitled: "The Budget Deficit: How Big and Issue, and What Should Be Done About It," with Dean Baker of the Center for Economic and Policy Research.
The Concord Coalition believes that only with an engaged, informed and demanding public can the nation's fiscal challenges be met. The Concord Coalition's mission is to cut through the usual partisan rhetoric and stimulate a more realistic public dialogue on what we want our nation's future to look like, along with the required trade-offs. We believe that elected leaders in Washington know there is a problem, but they are unlikely to act unless forced to by their constituents.
