NABE Policy Survey: March 2013

“The National Association for Business Economics (NABE) recently surveyed its members on a number of policy issues,” said NABE Policy Survey Committee Chair Jay Bryson, Global Economist at Wells Fargo Securities.  Regarding fiscal policy, a significant majority of panelists was opposed to full budget sequestration. However, there was nearly unanimous agreement that some form of deficit reduction should be enacted over the next 10 years. The preferred approach to long-term deficit reduction leaned toward spending cuts, with most respondents indicating that cuts should be focused primarily on entitlement programs. The panel was also heavily in favor of individual income tax reform, with the majority of participants preferring reform that raises revenue.”  Policy Survey March 2013
