Video: Spending Restraint, Part II: Lessons from Canada, Ireland, Slovakia, and New Zealand
17 April 2011
Dr. Dan Mitchell
"Nations can make remarkable fiscal progress if policy makers simply limit the growth of government spending. This video, which is Part II of a series, uses examples from recent history in Canada, Ireland, Slovakia, and New Zealand to demonstrate how it is possible to achieve rapid improvements in fiscal policy by restraining the burden of government spending. Part I of the series examined how Ronald Reagan and Bill Clinton were successful in controlling government outlays -- particularly the burden of domestic spending programs."
