Rising Debt: Sinking Our Future? Few public policy questions are more important than what we do about the sea of red ink surrounding us. Government debt is at the center of every policy issue confronting society. We face higher taxes, fewer services and a lower standard of living as a result. Yet, some debt is necessary and often itâ€™s needed to spark economic recovery. Join us for a session featuring Dr. Sara Imhof of the Concord Coalition and Dr. Scott Gilbert of the SIUC Department of Economics, in exploring what all this federal debt means for the future. A deficit reduction exercise designed by the non-partisan Concord Coalition will cap the discussion on how we manage it.
