Other CRFB Papers
CRFB has compiled an extended version of its "Averting a Fiscal Crisis" PowerPoint that also deals with why America needs a comprehensive fiscal plan. This version includes the reasons why a "Go Big" fiscal solution is the best approach for our situation.
Note: An earlier version of this release mistakenly referred to FY 2013 when citing FY 2012 numbers.
Note: An earlier version of this press release stated that debt under the CRFB Realistic Baseline could reach 84 percent by 2022, when in fact it could reach 84 percent by 2021 and over 86 percent by 2022.
