VIRTUAL EVENT

Policy Watch: The US Debt: How Does it Affect You, Your Business, and What Can We Do to Fix it?

SEPTEMBER 06, 2018

Welcome

In 2017, the U.S. debt surpassed $20 trillion for the first time. And looking forward, in just a few years, the federal government’s debt-to-GDP ratio may very well exceed 100 percent, making our debt burden the highest it has ever been since the end of World War II.

But what does all of this mean for you? Join this interactive discussion to learn how the national debt affects your paycheck and the overall fiscal health of the United States.  

Insights from this webcast:

  • Learn more about the state and trajectory of the national debt.
  • Hear how rising national debt will soon impact Americans – both young and old – and the businesses for which they work.
  • Discover what citizens and businesses can and should do to fix it.

Who Should Attend: Anyone with an interest in how rising national debt will impact business and the US economy, as well as individual wealth.
