The Tour aims to explain in plain terms why budget analysts of diverse perspectives are increasingly alarmed by the nation's fiscal outlook. The Fiscal Wake-Up Tour has been profiled on "60 Minutes" and in a recent documentary featuring Penn students, “I.O.U.S.A.”
The event is co-sponsored by Penn’s Annenberg School for Communication; the Political Science Department, Fels Institute of Government and Fox Leadership Program in the School of Arts and Sciences; and the Wharton School Business and Public Policy Department at Penn.
