2011 Fiscal Summit: Solutions for America’s Future

At a critical moment in an ongoing discussion of America’s economic future, the Peter G. Peterson Foundation’s 2011 Fiscal Summit brought together leading thinkers and policymakers who presented a range of ideas about how to solve the nation’s long-term fiscal challenges.

The Summit featured the results of the Foundation’s Solutions Initiative, which provided grants to six organizations from across the ideological and generational spectrum to develop plans to address the nation’s projected long-term debt and deficits. By convening leaders from across the ideological spectrum to discuss concrete budget plans, the 2011 Summit was an important step in working toward bipartisan fiscal solutions that help preserve the American Dream for future generations.
