Bob Bixby’s Lecture, 'The U.S. Fiscal Deficit: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly'

November 3, 2012
Rockefeller Center at Dartmouth

Excerpt

Bob Bixby of the Concord Coalition gave a great, easy-to-understand presentation on the current status of the fiscal cliff and the greater debt crisis, both topics that easily confuse people. . . 

Americans understand that something needs to be done, but they don’t want to necessarily give up the programs they rely on. Despite these political obstacles, Bob Bixby noted that there is still hope if we act soon. Most importantly, he reminded us that action can be taken by leaders outside of the political arena, even by college students like myself.
