Why the Federal Debt Still Matters

Why the Federal Debt Still Matters

Why the Federal Debt Still Matters

A Panel about our Fiscal Future

The Murphy Institute at Tulane University and the Campaign to Fix the Debt co-sponsored a conference on the federal debt.  The panel focused on the instability in our budget and economic future created by our long-run debt problem, and what realistic strategies are available to enable our political system to be able to handle this challenge. 

The Murphy Institute

Established in memory of Charles H. Murphy, Sr. (1870-1954), and inspired by the vision of Charles H. Murphy, Jr. (1920-2002), the Murphy Institute exists to help Tulane faculty and students understand economic, moral, and political problems we all face and think about. More important, it exists to help us understand how these problems have come to be so closely interconnected.
