Federal Reserve Chief Dennis Lockhart Addresses Forum on Managing Public Debt

Director of Swiss Federal Finance Administration Fritz Zurbrugg presents Switzerland's experience

Can the crippling U.S. debt be contained? This timely question will be discussed Thursday, February 10 from noon to 2:00 pm at a public forum called Balancing Act: A Dialogue on Public Debt and Fiscal Policy.

The event takes place at the Commerce Club at 191 Peachtree Street in downtown Atlanta and brings together economic policy makers for a lively discussion. Constitutional controls used in Switzerland, Great Britain and Canada will be highlighted as well as the U.S approach. Tickets are $25 including lunch; reservations are required.

Panelists

  • Fritz Zurbrügg, Director General of the Swiss Federal Finance Administration
  • Dennis P. Lockhart, President and CEO, Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta
  • Annabelle Malins, Her Majesty's Consul General, Consulate General of Great Britain, Atlanta
  • Glenn Campbell, Consul and head of economic finance program, Consulate General of Canada, New York
  • Moderator: Charles H. Green, executive director, Small Business Finance Institute, Atlanta

The forum is hosted by the Consulate General of Switzerland in Atlanta to honor Albert Gallatin’s 250th birthday – one of history’s most prominent Swiss Americans and the longest serving U.S. Secretary of the Treasury. He was adamantly opposed to public debt and cut it in half back in 1801 when the sum was only $80 million. Today, the U.S. public debt hovers at a staggering $14 trillion.

A limited number of media comp tickets are available.

For tickets, or interviews immediately after the program on February 10 or in advance by phone, please contact Lisa Frank at 404-255-8567, lisafrank@frankrelations.com
