 Former Reagan
 Budget Director



MSNBC Analyst, 
Author, Historian  

Money, it is said, makes the world go around. And nowhere does it have more impact than in Washington. Looming in the shadow of the battle over health care, are a series of political death cage matches that center on money and the country’s financial health: The debt ceiling. The budget. Trade Wars. Entitlements. Defense. The threats are apocalyptic, even if familiar. 

Meanwhile, economic signals are mixed. While the stock market soars and sets new highs, the economy grinds along at a glacial pace. Worrisome trends escalate. U.S. factory output sputters, falling for two months before nudging ahead. New orders for durable goods have slipped. So have housing starts. 

In the face of these mounting crises, former Reagan budget chief and supply-side economics czar, David Stockman will join historian and author Jonathan Alter to discuss the conundrum at the next “Conversation On the Green,” the interactive Town Hall series.

Moderated by

Former NBC News correspondent & talk show host. Audience members will be  encouraged to participate in the interactive town-hall style format.
