A Tour of the Federal Budget

May 7, 2013

About ten days ago I gave a lecture about the federal budget to the introductory economics course at Harvard University. I titled the talk “A Tour of the Federal Budget and Possible Changes in Budget Policy” and tried to cover budget developments over the past several decades, the future path of the budget under current law, and some broad proposals for changes in spending and tax policies. We posted my slides the day I gave the lecture, but in case you missed them, you can find them below.
