"The issue of the ‪national debt‬ will be addressed - either by leadership or crisis." – Maya MacGuineas

The U.S. national debt is at post-war record highs, both in dollars and as a share of the economy. And not only has it grown from 35 percent of the gross domestic product (GDP) in 2007—about the post-war average—to 74 percent today, it is projected to exceed the entire economy sometime in the 2030s.

Join us for a conversation with Sandy Cutler, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer at Eaton, and Maya MacGuineas, President of the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget, on the national debt crisis and its significance in the 2016 presidential election.

This conversation will be moderated by Inside Business managing editor Jennifer Keirn.
