CBO Director Doug Elmendorf's presentation at the Schaeffer Center of the University of Southern California

Director Elmendorf spoke to a conference sponsored by the Schaeffer Center for Health Policy and Economics at the University of Southern California. His remarks review CBO's analysis of the economic effects of the health legislation enacted in March. Those effects can be divided into two pieces: the effects on the five-sixths of the economy outside the health sector, and the effects on the health sector itself.
