2010 Fiscal Summit: America’s Challenge and a Way Forward

The Peterson Foundation convened a broad range of senior officials, policymakers, elected leaders, and experts at its first-ever 2010 Fiscal Summit: America’s Challenge and A Way Forward to launch a national bipartisan dialogue on America’s fiscal challenges.

The Fiscal Summit, held the day after the first meeting of the National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform, brought together hundreds of prominent stakeholders from across the political spectrum with diverse ideas on how to address critical fiscal issues, while continuing to meet the priorities of the American people.
