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  .

When you click on this link, you will be transferred to a page concerning the event.   If you scroll down, you will find a video link to his talk.  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.
