The Tax Policy Center hosts a program today on Red Ink and Bad Blood: What Do Federal Budget Politics Mean for the Next President and You? (webcast here):
Fiscal cliff. Taxmaggedon. Debt default. The Great Recession. Political gridlock. Sequestration. The making -- or unmaking -- of the federal budget is at play with each of these. Making sense of it all is the focus of David Wessel’s new book, Red Ink: Inside the High Stakes Politics of the Federal Budget.
- David Wessel (Economics Editor, The Wall Street Journal)
- Alice Rivlin (Co-chair, Bipartisan Policy Center’s Debt Reduction Task Force)
- Joseph Minarik (Senior Vice-President, Committee for Economic Development)
- Eugene Steuerle (Co-founder, Tax Policy Center)
