The US budget is on an unsustainable path. Improving the nation’s federal and economic outlook will require fundamental reforms to spending—particularly in the largest entitlement programs, the tax system, and the budget process itself. Mercatus fiscal policy research focuses on how the right reforms, applied to these key areas of the federal budget, can put the United States on the path to sustainable growth and increased economic opportunity.
