Alan Simpson and The National Debt
July 29, 2012 § Leave a comment
I just spent about an hour and a half watching and listening to a talk by former Senator from Wyoming Alan Simpson stating his views about the national debt. He spoke to an event sponsored by Rice University’s Baker Institute in October, 2011.
I am posting a link to this talk on this blog because I think his candid thoughts about the debt and some of the political issues surrounding it deserve a wider audience. I doubt that I would agree with some of his proposed solutions, but I am very impressed with his blunt assessment of the issues and some of the political figures who will be involved in dealing with them.
Here is a link to his talk: Simpson .

He is an entertaining speaker with a sharp wit and no hesitation about speaking his mind. I think you will enjoy the talk, regardless of whether you agree with everything he says.
