The University of Iowa’s Tippie College of Business will host two public discussions in collaboration with the Concord Coalition on federal spending, the future of Social Security, and health care cost control. The first event, called Principles & Priorities, is an interactive exercise in which participants work in groups to review current tax and spending policies and suggest priorities for the future. The event will take place on March 27 in Room W401 of the Pappajohn Business Building in Iowa City. Attendance is free and open to everyone, but registration is required. The second event, a panel discussion with federal policy experts about budget and spending priorities and health care spending, will take place on March 28 at noon in the same location. The panel will include Steve Robinson, the chief economist of the Concord Coalition, Anne Villamil, a federal economic policy expert, and Ramji Balakrishnan, a health care spending expert. The March 28 event is also free and open to the public, but registration is required. Register to attend in person or attend via Zoom. The Concord Coalition is a nonpartisan advocacy group that raises public awareness of federal debt issues and unsustainable fiscal policies. It was founded in 1992 by elected representatives of both major parties who were concerned about the growing debt.
