PGPF special report: "Fiscal Balancing Act"

This week the Peterson Foundation released a new report, "Fiscal Balancing Act," coauthored by economists Janice Eberly (Northwestern University, NBER) and Phillip Swagel (University of Maryland). The paper examines the close linkage between America's fiscal health and economic performance, specifically how addressing long-term fiscal challenges (like the national debt) can support growth and job creation.

Read the full report here. "Fiscal Balancing Act" was also presented today at the annual CGI America 2014 conference, with a panel discussion featuring Swagel, former NEC Director Gene Sperling, and PGPF President & COO Michael A. Peterson.
