The Federal Debt Debate: Ballooning Threat or Manageable Lifeline?

The next administration and Congress will face a large and growing federal debt. Although everyone recognizes the long-term imbalance between federal spending and revenues, there is ample debate about just how big a problem this is, and the extent to which it should be a priority for lawmakers.

Join Jason Furman, Harvard Kennedy School professor and former chair of the Council of Economic Advisors, and MI senior fellow Brian Riedl engage in a collegial debate moderated by The Wall Street Journal’s Kate Davidson, about debt, deficits, and what to do about them.
