Economist considers U.S. deficit, debt

The U.S. Congress should move quickly to adopt a frame­work for reducing the federal government debt, including plans for tax reform and dealing with the ballooning cost of entitlement programs, economist Andrew Reschovsky writes in the latest issue of the La Follette Policy Report.

Alum Amy Hanauer didn't like that the economic expansion in the 1990s had left families in Ohio behind, she says. "My experience in Wisconsin — from the skills I gained at La Follette, to the policy history I read in class, to the direct policy I experienced working for the legislature — all made me feel like I needed to speak out."
