The Future of Debt: A Law & Liberty Symposium

Unless a dramatic political realignment comes to pass, it seems safe to predict that the United States will continue to run significant federal deficits well into the future. But what makes this sustainable, and for how long? While Law & Liberty has long covered issues of sovereign debt, deficits, and the role these matters play in politics abroad, with new record-breaking proposals for spending in the air, we thought it important to bring together a few distinguished authors to comment on these matters and how they relate to the current moment:

The Fed Will Be Forced to Choose: Inflation or Insolvency?

by Antony Davies

Restoring Fiscal Conflict

by James Wallner

Modern Monetary Theory and the Moral Equivalent of War

by Leonidas Zelmanovitz
