2015 Summit May 19, 2015

America’s economic recovery is finally taking hold and current deficits are down from the record highs during the recession. At the same time, far too many American families are being left out of the recovery, and our nation still faces an unsustainable long-term fiscal outlook. In this context — with progress made, but serious work still to be done — the Peter G. Peterson Foundation held its sixth-annual Fiscal Summit, titled "Opportunity for America" on May 19, 2015 in Washington, D.C.

The 2015 Fiscal Summit explored America’s economy and fiscal outlook at this transitional moment, convening leading experts and policymakers to examine the state of economic opportunity in America today, and the opportunity the nation has to address its long-term debt and build a vibrant, growing economy of the future.
