David Walker

Senior Strategic Advisor, Global Public Sector Practice, PricewaterhouseCoopers; Author; Respected Executive and Champion of National Fiscal Responsibility

Comeback America: Turning the Country Around and Restoring Fiscal Responsibility

He’s one of America’s most capable, candid and independent financial experts. Now David M. Walker sounds a call to action. As Comptroller General of the United States—"the nation’s top auditor"—Walker warned Congress and the administration as the federal surplus became a giant deficit over the last decade. Now, as the founder and CEO of the Comeback America Initiative, Walker has mounted a national campaign to raise public awareness regarding the wasteful ways of Washington and the rising debt burdens being imposed on future generations. He advocates returning to the timeless principles and values that made us great while making the tough choices necessary to help ensure that our future is better than our past. With the federal government’s financial hole already over 13 trillion dollars deep and growing rapidly, Walker presents ways for our country to rein in out-of-control government spending and reform our Social Security, health care, defense, tax, political and other systems before it’s too late.

What Would the Founders Say?: Historical and Modern-Day Perspectives on the Fiscal Crisis

Like a modern-day Paul Revere, David Walker warns that while our country’s current fiscal crisis is eerily similar to the downfall of Rome, Americans have a proven historical capacity to overcome any challenge when "We the People" wake up and get going. Walker shares an engaging historical perspective that takes listeners from Rome to the Founding Fathers’ original intent. With deftness and detail, he shows how we got here, what measures we must take to get ourselves out of the financial morass and what the implications will be if we continue to follow the „status quo“ path. In spite of the fiscal crisis, Walker imparts his faith that Americans will respond with commitment to the sacrifices required to make sure that our future is better than our past.

Meet David Walker

Called the "Paul Revere on the unsustainable fiscal outlook for our country," David Walker is the authority on addressing the fiscal challenges that lie ahead for America—and what we must do about them now.

During his almost ten-year tenure as the U.S. Comptroller General, Dave Walker transformed the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) and traveled the country sounding the alarm to Americans about unsustainable fiscal policies that threaten to derail the nation’s future. Walker is still sounding the alarm, but he is also assisting top government leaders in making government more future-focused, results-oriented, responsive, efficient, equitable and sustainable. Well-recognized for his fiscal responsibility and accountability, government transformation and retirement security expertise, he currently serves as the first senior strategic advisor for the Global Public Sector Practice at PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC).

Walker is an expert at presenting the facts and discussing specific proposed solutions to the financial challenges facing government at all levels. Specifically, he discusses what can be done to increase economy growth, provide more opportunity, create jobs and restore fiscal responsibility for generations to come. He has authored three books including his most recent Comeback America: Turning the Country Around and Restoring Fiscal Responsibility. His single-mindedness in his mission of restoring fiscal sustainability caught the attention of Sundance film veteran Patrick Creadon, who featured Walker in the acclaimed film on the American financial crisis entitled I.O.U.S.A.
