Federal Deficits Debate – Albuquerque

Debate: Federal Deficits:

Concrete Boots or Life Jackets For a Troubled Economy?

Beyond the Talking Points!

To fiscal conservatives like Rio Grande Foundation president Paul Gessing, the piling up of trillion-dollar federal budget deficits is a huge economic problem courting an utter fiscal collapse.

To liberals like Nick Estes, formerly of New Mexico Voices for Children, today’s deficits are needed for jump-starting our flagging economy and spurring economic growth.

Who’s right? You be the judge. Gessing and Estes will face off in a debate over the federal deficit. Attendance is free.

  • When:  The debate will be held from 6:30 to 8:00PM on Wednesday, April 17, 2013.
  • Where:  The auditorium of the Albuquerque Museum 2000 Mountain Road NW, Albuquerque, NM  87104.
  • Who:  Paul Gessing, president of New Mexico’s free market think tank and Nick Estes, formerly of the progressive think tank and advocacy organization Voices for Children. The panel will be moderated by Dennis Domrzalski a reporter with Albuquerque Business First. Questions will be taken from the audience.

Come by for an interesting discussion and see if we all can’t learn something.
