Cutting Spending in the US: Can It Be Done?

Feb 18, 2014
Rayburn House Office Building B-339

Event Speakers

David R. Henderson

Associate Professor of Economics, Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey

Is today’s political climate too toxic to reduce spending? Does divided government make it impossible to make substantial cuts?

For answers to these questions and more, please join the Mercatus Center at George Mason University for a Capitol Hill Campus featuring Dr. David Henderson. Dr. Henderson will walk you through how an often vitriolic group of lawmakers came together in a bipartisan way to reduce spending in the 1990s and explain how we can once again exercise restraint.
