Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget

Business Roundtable Deficit Forum Today

Sep 6, 2011

Starting in just a few minutes, Business Roundtable (BRT) will host a forum on the deficit -- “Meeting the Challenges of Economic Growth and Deficit Reduction” -- wherein experts will look at the work facing the Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction (Super Committee). The event will feature three panels, looking at the committee’s mandate, how the committee may meet their goals and what cuts or reforms might be in play, and tax reform and economic growth.

Among the 11 experts who will sit on the various panels are CRFB president Maya MacGuineas, CRFB co-chair Jim Nussle, and CRFB board members Doug Holtz-Eakin, Dan Crippen, and Alice Rivlin. The event is set to start at 1:30pm, so don't forget to tune in to the live stream (below).
