Two macroeconomists assessed the state of the economy, examining policies that will increase growth in the near-term, while building the foundation for a stronger and more durable economy for the future. This session will include discussion of the effect of fiscal policy on growth, wages, interest rates, mobility, opportunity and more. They will survey the most effective mix of policies that will positively affect these trends in both the short and long run.

“Macro Perspectives: Viewpoints on Economic Growth and Fiscal Reform” was part of the Peter G. Peterson Foundation’s “2014 Fiscal Summit: Our Economic Future,” held at the Andrew W. Mellon Auditorium in Washington, D.C. close
