Professor Buchanan Leads Debt Ceiling Discussion
During October's two-and-a-half week government shutdown, the United States Treasury sought out options to pay the country’s financial obligations if Congress failed to increase the debt ceiling by October 18. Professor Neil Buchanan, an economist and legal scholar, was at the forefront of the national conversation about alternatives available to the President and Congressional leaders.
Professor Buchanan was cited, interviewed, and quoted in over a dozen media outlets to explain his published, peer-reviewed theory: that faced with a series of unconstitutional options, the President should continue to issue debt without Congressional approval. Professor Buchanan explains this theory in his recently published book, The Debt Ceiling Disasters.
