"Fallout from the Budget Deal. . . or No Deal?"
Joe Minarik, Senior Vice President and Director of Research at the Center for Economic Development, will discuss the recent budget agreement reached between the House and the Senate in December. He will address the deal for what it did, and for what it did not do.

He serves on two national commissions committed to reducing the national budget deficit including the Bipartisan Policy Center’s Debt Reduction Task Force and the National Academy of Science’s Our Fiscal Future project.
Minarik was the chief economist at the Office of Management and Budget for eight years under the Clinton Administration, helping to formulate the Administration’s program to eliminate the budget deficit, which evolved into the bipartisan Balanced Budget Act of 1997. Prior to his service in the Clinton Administration, Minarik served as Chief Economist to the House Budget Committee, and worked closely with Senator Bill Bradley on reforming tax policy, later publishing Making Tax Choices.
Minarik received three graduate degrees in economics from Yale University, earning his Ph.D. in 1974. He has a B.A. in economics from Georgetown University.
