2012 Fiscal Summit: America's Case for Action

On May 15th, the Peter G. Peterson Foundation brought together leaders from government, policy, academia, and the media for the 2012 Fiscal Summit: America's Case for Action. With a national election that fall, and critical fiscal deadlines at the end of the year, policymakers faced a prime opportunity to set America on a fiscally sustainable path.

Through speeches, interviews, and panel discussions, as well as videos featuring Americans from across the country, the Fiscal Summit explored the potential for progress and the importance of building bipartisan consensus to generate the political will for action.
