There is a critical connection between America’s fiscal outlook, energy security and role in the world. Dr. Moniz, a nuclear physicist who served as the thirtieth United States Secretary of Energy, brings a unique understanding of these interrelated challenges and trends.
Members of US 2050’s Advisory Committee joined together for a discussion, led by David Wessel, on these interconnected trends and the importance of understanding where we’re headed in order to make better policy choices today.
This panel will bring together voices from the private sector and academia to analyze the threats posed by America’s rapidly rising national debt and discuss fiscal solutions to put us on a better path.
Rep. Tom Reed (R-NY) and Rep. Derek Kilmer (D-WA) appeared together on stage to discuss the political challenges in reaching across the aisle, as well as the opportunity that exists for collaboration and compromise to make progress in critical policy areas.
