Event Speakers

Jason J. Fichtner

Former Senior Research Fellow

Mercatus Center supporters and friends are invited to join Mercatus scholar Dr. Jason Fichtner for lunch and informal discussion on the systemic problems of the federal budget and ways to help Congress bring fiscal responsibility to Washington. This event is by invitation only.
From its beginnings in the White House, through the many roles Congress takes to authorize and enforce the budget, Jason will navigate the twisting, puzzling conglomeration of bureaucratic steps, political goals, and accounting rules that go into making our government function. Please join Dr. Fichtner as he illustrates the structural and practical flaws that plague the budget process, and provides practical solutions for how the budget process can be fixed. 
This is not a fundraising event and there is no charge to join us. 
If you have questions or you would like to RSVP for yourself and your guests, please contact Megan Gandee at 703-993-4967 or mmahan@gmu.edu.
