Woodrow Wilson School to Host WWS- Bloomberg View Presidential Election Panel, September 25
The Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs at Princeton University is teaming up with Bloomberg View, the global opinion site, to host a presidential election panel discussion, "Is the Welfare State on the Ballot in November?" The discussion will be held on Tuesday, September 25, 2012, at 4:30 p.m., Dodds Auditorium, Robertson Hall, and will feature columnists for Bloomberg View and Woodrow Wilson School faculty experts. A public reception will follow the discussion in Shultz dining room.
Is the upcoming election a referendum on the size and role of government, particularly spending on entitlements such as Medicare? Do the majority of voters really care about the so-called “welfare state,” or are they more focused on jobs – or something else?
