Peterson Foundation President & CEO and Former Comptroller General of the United States. Walker is widely acclaimed as one of the country's most capable, candid and independent financial experts.
In his new book, Comeback America: Turning the Country Around and Restoring Fiscal Responsibility, Walker outlines steps to reform our tax, retirement, health care, defense and other systems before it's too late. Walker, who also headed the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) for almost ten years, is the featured speaker at the next Hatton W.
