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.
