The MEI’s Happy Hour – The Public Debt Problem

The Canadian launch of Pierre Lemieux’s new book The Public Debt Problem.

The European public debt problem was in the making long before the 2007-2009 recession and a similar crisis is developing in America, where the same fundamental causes have been at work. The Public Debt Problem analyzes the situation of public debts in America and reviews the official forecasts for the federal government. This book will help the intelligent layman understand what the problem is, and what are the available solutions.

Pierre Lemieux is an economist, a professeur associé at the Université du Québec en Outaouais, and a Senior Fellow at the MEI. He has been affiliated with the MEI since its very beginning.
