Bowles is the former Co-Chair of the National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility & Reform. The product of that commission was a bi-partisan plan to reduce our nation’s federal deficit, more commonly known as the “Simpson-Bowles plan.”

Everyone in Washington knows that the current fiscal path America is on is unsustainable, unconscionable and predictable—but few have the political will to enact the hard choices that must be made to get the country “back on track.” Appointed by President Obama to co-chair the National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform, Erskine Bowles provides a candid discourse on what America’s leaders must do to confront what many see as the largest and most critical economic, social, business and national security threat that the country faces.
