MIIS speaker to relate ‘budget horror studies’ Health care and the future of the national deficit

The Middlebury Institute of International Studies in Monterey will feature the co-founder of the Center for Economic and Policy Research for a discussion on health-care costs and the national deficit at 6 p.m.  February 27.

We continually hear horror stories about future budget deficits in the United States. What we don’t hear, overlooked by press and policy makers alike, is that future deficits are driven largely by projections of rising health care costs.

Join Dr. Dean Baker, Senior Economist & Co-Founder, Center for Economic and Policy Research as he discusses his research on the future of health care costs and the national budget. Location is Middlebury Institute of International Studies, McGowan Building, Room 102, 411 Pacific Street, Monterey, CA 93940.   

Free, Open to the Public. Registration Requested. Website for more info: go.miis.edu/sustainability.   For questions, contact Rachel Christopherson at the Center for the Blue Economy at cbe@miis.edu or (831) 647-4183.
