Debt Debate at Cato

This Thursday at 6:30 PM at the Cato Institute, I’ll be discussing the national debt and its impact on the “millennial generation.”  My
co-discussants are Megan McArdle of the Atlantic and Matt Yglesias of the Center for American ProgressDan Mitchell of Cato will moderate.

It should be a fun discussion and I plan to learn a great deal from the others.  Here is the teaser from Cato:

How will mounting deficits impact today’s young people in the years to come? Some argue that government spending is necessary to ensure the future by providing school loans, unemployment insurance, infrastructure investments, and other social provisions. Others hold that government spending cripples the future due to massive welfare commitments, misaligned economic incentives, and polluted market signals.

Here is the address:

The Cato Institute
1000 Massachusetts Avenue, NW
Washington, DC 20001

If you can’t make it in person, you can watch it on line.  Did I mention it was non-priced?

    Looking forward to this discussion! Many Millenials don’t understand how the debt will affect them in the long-run and I think this discussion will clear-up many of those questions.
