Abstract

On May 9, 2008, just as the first rebate payments were starting to land in taxpayers' checking accounts, the Center for the Study of Innovation and Productivity (CSIP) hosted a symposium on "Research on the Effects of Fiscal Stimulus." The symposium featured four of the foremost economic experts on fiscal policy who spoke about countercyclical fiscal policy and the likely impact of the most recent stimulus package. This Economic Letter summarizes their remarks. ; Presentations are listed at the end, and three of the four are available at http://www.frbsf.org/csip/index.php.
