The Debt and Deficit Debate and the Untold Story of the Impact on Vulnerable Populations
August 3, 2011

On August 1, 2011, the Joint Center conducted a webinar that focused on the challenges facing African Americans and other people of color, and particularly their concerns that measures related to the debt ceiling debate could exacerbate already high unemployment and undermine short-term and long-term economic prospects. Congressman Bobby Scott (D-VA) joined several scholars and economists in a spirited discussion on the day before the President signed the bill into law.

The webinar audio and slideshow can be viewed here. Slides are also available for download.
