Peter G. Peterson Foundation Events
To solve our fiscal challenges in an enduring way, we need input and support from across the ideological spectrum. This value of inclusion and collaboration is reflected in all of the Foundation’s work, and particularly in our role as a convener of people and ideas. We bring together influencers and policymakers to find common cause and develop commonsense reforms. From our signature annual conference, the Fiscal Summit in Washington, D.C., to timely events around the country at key political and policy moments, our goal is to give voice to constructive, substantive and policy-focused discussions on what’s needed to restore America’s future.
Peter G. Peterson Foundation Economic Forum
The Peter G. Peterson Foundation Economic Forum brings together thought leaders shaping the future of our nation for in-depth conversations on America’s most pressing issues. The inaugural series of the Economic Forum explores the significant impact and policy implications of the COVID-19 pandemic. As lawmakers enact major programs to address the devastating damage to our health, economy and society, many critical questions remain about the path forward. This Forum series will host conversations that explore lessons learned thus far, ideas for when and how we can safely reopen the economy, and how effective fiscal policy can both aid recovery and prepare us better for the next unforeseen crisis.
The Fiscal Summit
The Peter G. Peterson Foundation’s Fiscal Summit is the premier annual gathering dedicated to addressing our nation’s long-term debt and improving our economic future. Debuting in 2010, the Summit is a key event for the foundation to build consensus and support for putting America on a sustainable fiscal path.
By 2050, the US will be very different than it is today. Adults aged 65 and over will outnumber children under the age of 18, and our population will be much more racially and ethnically diverse, the young much more so than the old. With those changing demographics as a backdrop, the US 2050 project examines the socioeconomic developments and fiscal choices we make today that will determine standards of living decades from now.
On March 22, scholars and policy experts convened in Washington, D.C., to engage in conversation anchored by the insights and conclusions from the project’s 31 commissioned papers, which touch on a wide variety of topics related to our nation’s future.

As part of the Foundation’s ongoing efforts to ensure that the fiscal implications of current legislation are always front and center for policymakers, the Foundation hosts in-depth, news-making conversations and events. Through partnerships with media organizations such as POLITICO, CNN and Bloomberg, the Foundation is able to bring together a bipartisan mix of the nation's most important fiscal leaders for lively and in-depth analysis of the latest policy and political developments on Capitol Hill.
