Former U.S. Comptroller General to Discuss “America at a Crossroads: The Fiscal Challenges and a Way Forward” on Jan. 9th at 4:30 PM

Article Type 

America is at a critical crossroads. The choices that U.S. elected officials make in connection with the role of government and its finances over the next 5 years will largely determine whether America’s collective future will be better than its past.

  • What are America’s fiscal facts?
  • What are sensible solutions to America’s fiscal challenges?
  • How will these solutions work to make America stay great?
  • How can the American Dream stay alive for today’s families and future generations of Americans?

Presidential candidates have been invited.

David Walker is the Founder, President, and CEO of the Comeback America Initiative (CAI), where he leads CAI's efforts to promote fiscal responsibility and sustainability by engaging the public and assisting key policymakers on a nonpartisan basis to help achieve solutions to America's federal, state, and local fiscal imbalances. Previously, he served as the first President and CEO of the Peter G. Peterson Foundation. Walker served as the seventh U.S. Comptroller General and head of the U.S. Government Accountability Office (1998-2008). This was one of Walker's three presidential appointments, each by different Presidents during his 15 years of total federal service. He also has more than 20 years of private sector experience, including as a Partner and Global Managing Director of Human Capital Services for Arthur Andersen LLP. He has authored three books, with the latest one entitled Comeback America: Turning the Country Around and Restoring Fiscal Responsibility (2010). He is a frequent writer and media commentator, and is a subject of the critically acclaimed documentary I.O.U.S.A.

We hope to see you at this exciting time in New Hampshire, January 9, 2012 – the day before the “first-in-the-nation” primary – at 4:30 pm in Filene Auditorium, Moore Hall, Dartmouth College for “America at a Crossroads: The Fiscal Challenges and a Way Forward.”
