On Jan. 29 at 7:00pm EST, GW’s Face the Facts presents “Out of Time: An American Crisis,” a special event that features political experts from around the country, including Bill Richardson and Carly Fiorina.
The program will be broadcast live on C-SPAN TV and radio, as well as streamed live online. GW’s Frank Sesno, director of the School of Media and Public Affairs, will moderate.
Presented in conjunction with the Bipartisan Policy Center and America Speaks, “Out of Time” will consider whether Americans can still come together to do great things.
The program will consist of a role-play scenario that mirrors real world events and captures the dilemmas and tradeoffs as America struggles to get its fiscal house in order, wrestles with calamities in Europe, decides what it can afford, what it must cut and who will get priority.
The debate and dilemmas highlighted will be chosen to have discernable local economic impact so that every American – Beltway officials, local mayors and business leaders, individual families – can relate to the stakes, tradeoffs and consequences.
