Panel: Federal Reserve and The U.S. Debt

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In general, government debt increases as a result of government spending, and decreases from tax and other receipts, both of which fluctuate during the course of a fiscal year.  Debt and spending may also be impacted by monetary policies that are coordinated by the Federal Reserve independently of the Federal Government.  Discussion topics include the ratio of debt to GDP, marketable or non-marketable securities, and measuring debt burden.
