Stabilize the Debt: An Online Exercise in Hard Choices The long-term debt of the United States is rising to unprecedented – and unsustainable – levels. Under official budget projections, the public debt of the U.S. is projected to grow to about 100% of the economy by 2035 and nearly 150% and still climbing by 2050. Debt at these levels will threaten economic growth and the standard of living for all Americans.This simulation was designed to illustrate the tough budget choices that will have to be made and to promote a public dialogue on how we can set a sustainable fiscal course. How do your choices stack up? Creator: Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget (CRFB) Access rights: Free Access Type: Interactive Simulation
