Professors Linda Fowler, Russell Muirhead, Ronald Shaiko, and Charles Wheelan to discuss the math & politics of federal budget and fiscal deficit. Moderated by Prof. Marjorie Rose.
Everyone is in agreement – more or less – to what needs to be done, but there is no political will to do so. What needs to be done is completely opposite of what every candidate promises during the campaign. This cycle has been going on for more than a decade. How do we stop the cycle?
Faculty participants: Linda L. Fowler, Professor of Government, Frank J. Reagan '09 Chair in Policy Studies; Russell Muirhead, Robert Clements Associate Professor of Democracy and Politics; Ronald G. Shaiko, Senior Fellow, Associate Director of Curricular Programs, Rockefeller Center, and Research Associate Professor, Department of Government; Charles Wheelan '88, Senior Lecturer and Policy Fellow, Rockefeller Center, and Senior Lecturer in Economics, Department of Economics.
