The Fiscal Cliff: New Heights of Sensationalism
Anita Tuvin Schlechter Auditorium
333 West High Street
Carlisle, PA, 17013
The media have endlessly raised fears of the government falling off the "fiscal cliff." CEPR Co-Director Dean Baker participated in a talk that explained why such talk fundamentally misrepresents the short-term budget problem and how the longer-term problem has been misrepresented as well. This event was sponsored by The Clarke Forum for Contemporary Issues and co-sponsored by the Departments of Economics and Policy Studies and the Keystone Research Center.
