Diane Lim Rogers, Chief Economist for The Concord Coalition, will deliver a presentation entitled “The post 9/11 Economy: Getting Civilized about Deficit Reduction” to the Sheboygan and Lakeland College Economics Club.
Q&A is included and encouraged.
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.
