A Nation in Debt: How Can We Pay the Bills?
A National Issues Forum
Thurs., Oct. 4th —7pm
Dauch College of Business & Economics
A short video, researched and developed by National Issues Forum, will explain three possible solutions to the national debt. Louise Fleming, Executive Director of the Center for Civic Life at Ashland University, will moderate a discussion on the benefits and trade-offs of each solution. Judy White, Center for Civic Life at Ashland University member, will record comments which will be available online and will be sent to Ashland’s legislators. Come prepared to participate!
National Issues Forums (NIF) is a network of civic, educational, and other organizations, and individuals, whose common interest is to promote public deliberation in America. It has grown to include thousands of civic clubs, religious organizations, libraries, schools, and many other groups that meet to discuss critical public issues. Forum participants range from teenagers to retirees, prison inmates to community leaders, and literacy students to university students.
NIF does not advocate specific solutions or points of view but provides citizens the opportunity to consider a broad range of choices, weigh the pros and cons of those choices, and meet with each other in a public dialogue to identify the concerns they hold in common. This particular forum will focus upon the national debt.
A full issues book is available for download at the NIF Store on the website of the National Issues Forum. The price is $1.99. At the meeting, there will be a handout of the issue in brief.
