Panel Session: Game On: 2012 and Beyond

Key points

  • It’s important to remember that this election has big consequences for both the American economy and for the world economy.
  • Governor Romney and his people in Boston have a really simple theory of this race. It’s macro, not micro.
  • President Obama wants to make the race about what kind of job he will do for the next four years compared to the alternative.
  • This is going to be the most expensive election we have ever seen. We are going to spend probably $2.5 billion, which is an order of magnitude more than we spent on the last one.
