    In this issue

    “Will continuing to run large government budget deficits lead to higher real interest rates and crowding out of private sector in-vestment? How will the unprecedented aging of the population and declining fertility rates affect fiscal sustainability? These are some of the critical questions that need to be explored as the U.S. exhibits signs of fiscal profligacy.” – Does the US Face a Long-Term Fiscal Sustainability Problem? by V. Jayakumar

    “While the national economy is experiencing a slowing housing market, moderate wage growth, and increasing economic uncertainty, Tampa Bay remains on an upward economic trajectory.” - Tampa Bay Forecast: Local Economy Outpaces National by J. Stinespring
