"Given the relevance of what is going on in our country today concerning the national debt and fiscal health, it is imperative that policy discussions such as this take place as a way to inform, enlighten and promote dialogue," said Dennis Haynes, interim dean of the UTSA College of Public Policy. "We are thrilled to host this event on campus and are pleased that Concord Coalition has chosen San Antonio as one of many cities to host this event."
Tour participants will talk about the nation's financial future, a range of potential solutions to be considered, what trade-offs will have to be made, and how to leave a stronger and prosperous nation for generations.
This initiative follows up on the Fiscal Wake-Up Tour, a highly acclaimed effort in which budget analysts of diverse perspectives explained why they were increasingly alarmed by the nation's longer-term fiscal outlook. Between 2005 and 2009, the Wake-Up Tour visited more than 70 cities across the country and was the subject of the critically acclaimed documentary "I.O.U.S.A."
The Concord Coalition is a national, grassroots organization dedicated to fiscal responsibility. Former U.S. Senators Warren B. Rudman (R-N.H.) and Bob Kerrey (D-Neb.) serve as its co-chairs and former U.S. Secretary of Commerce Peter G. Peterson serves as president.
