Alice Rivlin (Exclusively WSB)

It's a fact: Federal spending will rise rapidly in the next few years for Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. These programs are already more than 40% of federal spending and are rising faster than every other budget line except interest on the debt. Clearly, costs of this kind simply cannot be sustained, and even though health care reform has passed, there are still further political, social and electoral implications. What's the solution? What must be done before three of the country's most important programs become too unwieldy to repair or altogether insolvent? Visionary thinker Alice Rivlin, former vice chair of the Federal Reserve Board tackles the perpetually daunting problem of health care spending with ideas and energy that made her one of the most effective, influential and respected policy makers and economic minds in the country. Navigating the at-times labyrinthine budget process, Rivlin clarifies where the U.S. stands, where it’s headed and what the country needs to do to secure a healthy (and fiscally healthy) future for its citizens.

Alice Rivlin (Exclusively WSB)

What's ahead on the economic horizon? Things seem more than unsettled at the moment: with renewed tension in the Middle East, an unstable housing market and a federal deficit that has increased significantly over the past few years, the implications for the nation's economic health seem muddled and confused and in desperate need of clarification. Alice Rivlin, former vice chair of the Federal Reserve Board and one of the most influential policy makers in Washington, puts her finger on the pulse of the nation's economic health and clarifies the economic clutter to discuss how the latest political and business headlines will shape growth and markets both domestically and internationally.
