Speaker:
Robert D. Hormats Author, "The Price of Liberty;" Vice Chairman, Goldman Sachs International
Presider:
Lawrence J. Korb Senior Fellow, Center for American Progress
Description

As the fight between Congress and the Administration about Iraq war funding rages, Robert D. Hormats, Vice Chairman, Goldman Sachs International, and Author, The Price of Liberty: Paying for America's Wars, contends that borrowing to pay for the Iraq war and an unclear fiscal strategy for paying for a long-term war on terror threaten our financial security--and our national security. Join Ambassador Hormats for a timely discussion on the role of the government and the public in safeguarding national security against the backdrop of today's increasing deficit, political pressures, and changing economic landscape.
