A Conversation with Linda Douglass and Alice Rivlin

The Atlantic and ExxonMobil’s Women of Washington event is slated for July 28 at the Newseum.

With less than three weeks until the United States will face potentially catastrophic consequences should Congress fail to agree on how to raise the debt ceiling, The Atlantic is hosting a conversation featuring economist and former V.P. of the Federal Reserve Alice Rivlin with The Atlantic‘s own Linda Douglass. The discussion will speak to the eventual compromise to raise the nation’s $14.3 billion debt ceiling and explore potential revenue increases, spending cuts, and the future of our nation’s tax policy.

The event takes place at 8 a.m. at the Knight Broadcast Studio in the Newseum (555 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW, Washington, DC). It concludes promptly at 10:00 a.m.
