A representative from the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget (CRFB), Zach Moller, visited from Washington, DC on Oct 23rd to host a hands-on debt simulation workshop. Econ Club students explored ways to eliminate our current debt crisis, and experimented with the CRFB’s “Debt Fixer” platform. Zach tabulated students’ results and led a discussion about the trade-offs involved with balancing the federal budget. Pizza was enjoyed by all! See Zach’s tweet and photos above.
