Watch Live: Joseph Stiglitz, Dean Baker and Others to Respond to Fiscal Commission

Webcast Event: “Prosperity, Not Austerity,” A Response to the Fiscal Commission and A Blueprint for Economic Recovery, 12/1, 10 am PST

Tomorrow (12/1/2010) afternoon, Pres. Obama’s bipartisan National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform will release its much discussed final report on federal budget priorities. The report, as previewed in the mark-up published by commission co-chairs Erskine Bowles and Alan Simpson three weeks ago, is likely to propose a program of harsh austerity measures, including calls for cuts in Social Security and other programs that will adversely affect the middle class.

From 10:00 am to 12:00 noon PST tomorrow, immediately following the report’s release, a panel of prominent economists and budget experts will respond to the findings and recommend alternative paths to fiscal responsibility, with sustained economic growth for all Americans.
