NEW YORK — The Peter G. Peterson Foundation will convene the 2016 Fiscal Summit: Leadership for a Secure Future on Wednesday, May 11, 2016, at the Andrew W. Mellon Auditorium in Washington, DC. In the midst of a heated election year, the Foundation’s seventh-annual Fiscal Summit will bring together leading experts and policymakers to explore the leadership required to secure America’s future and put forward recommendations for the next President to make progress on our long-term fiscal and economic challenges.
At $19 trillion and growing, the national debt threatens our fiscal, economic and national security. Voters understand that our nation’s strength and prosperity are dependent on our fiscal health. On our current path, the debt is projected to grow to levels that will negatively impact our future economy. Our global standing and ability to confront our greatest threats tomorrow are dependent on our leaders today.
The 2016 Fiscal Summit will provide a national platform for this essential election-year conversation. Throughout the day policymakers, experts, and thought leaders will assess what needs to be accomplished in the next four to eight years to meet our nation’s priorities.
2016 Summit participants will include:
Moderators and interviewers for the Summit will include:
In addition to the panel discussions, attendees will have the opportunity to participate in the Foundation’s “Ask for a Plan” campaign. This national campaign is educating voters about the nation’s fiscal security, and encourages them to ask candidates for federal office for their plan to address it. Participants can send a message asking presidential candidates and their candidates for the U.S. Senate and U.S. House for a fiscal plan at AskForAPlan.org.
