Alan Auerbach, Robert D. Burch Professor of Economics and Law, UC Berkeley
Tammy Frisby, Research Fellow, Hoover Institution; Lecturer, Stanford University’s Department of Political Science
Melissa Griffin, Political Reporter, KPIX-TV - Moderator

The divisiveness between Republicans and Democrats has culminated in the recent shutdown of the federal government. Beyond the shuttered agencies and closed national parks, what are consequences when the leading economy in the world closes up shop? How did party differences around health-care coverage lead us to this point, and what will the possible expansion of the national debt limit mean for your bottom line? How can we create change and urge our leaders to make decisions that benefit their constituencies?

Join panelists Alan Auerbach and Tammy Frisby for a lively discussion of the government dilemma and its implications for the future.

This will be a FREE Town Hall Meeting.
