The Urban-Brookings Tax Policy Center, recipient of the MacArthur Award for Creative and Effective Institutions, hosted a bipartisan forum (see video) on how the federal government can avoid budget catastrophe, which featured theoretical and modeling work supported by the Foundation. The panel discussed options for fiscal reform and the trade-off between the immediate need to address a floundering economic recovery and the long-term need to achieve fiscal sustainability.
