11 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in 3 languages and held by 961 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this short, powerful book, Peter G. Peterson, one of America's top investment bankers and a leading critic of our entitlement policy, spells out in the clearest possible language, with unmistakable numbers and easy-to-read charts, the disaster that lies ahead if we continue to ignore our low savings rate, our ballooning federal deficit, and our enormous unfunded and unsustainable commitments to retirees. Peterson reveals what politicians are afraid to admit: trillions of dollars of promised Social Security and Medicare benefits for which no funds have been provided. Shattering the myths surrounding this subject with hard facts and eye-opening views of the future, Peterson gives the most comprehensive and candid plan for a gradual, humane, fair, and realistic answer to the greatest challenge of the next century: transforming our political, economic, cultural, and social assumptions to adapt to the realities of the graying of America

Steering clear : how to avoid a debt crisis and secure our economic future by Peter G Peterson( Book )

6 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 217 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Philanthropist, businessman, and former Secretary of Commerce Peter G. Peterson argues that America must address its long-term debt in order to build a strong economy, today and in the future. If we continue to ignore America's unsustainable fiscal challenges, we are steering our country towards a collision with long-term debt that will diminish economic opportunities for the next generation, weaken our ability to protect vulnerable people, and undermine the competitive strength of our businesses in a vastly more global and technological world. The gross federal debt now exceeds $17 trillion, and it is projected to soar in coming decades, diverting resources from the critical private and public investments we need to make in education, R & D, and infrastructure to secure our economic future and Americans' well-being. Yet Washington is gridlocked, risking a crippled economy for our children and grandchildren. Peterson offers a non-partisan analysis of our dilemma and a robust set of options for solving our long-term debt problem. He looks at the impact of aging baby boomers, growing health care costs, outdated military spending, our flawed tax code, and our divided political system. And he shows how we can improve our fiscal outlook through a mix of pro-growth reforms that would reduce government spending and increase revenue, which could be phased in gradually in the years to come once our economy has recovered"--
