The U.S. merchandise trade deficit is a part of the overall U.S. balance of payments (BoP), a summary statement of all economic transactions between the residents of the U.S. and the rest of the world, during a given period of time. Some Members of Congress and others are concerned over the magnitude of the U.S. merchandise trade deficit and the associated increase in U.S. dollar-denominated assets owned by foreigners. This report provides an overview of the U.S. BoP, an explanation of the broader role of capital flows in the U.S. economy, an explanation of how the country finances its trade d

The great challenge for the future will be the task of increasing food production with less water, particularly in countries with limited water and land resources. In the context of improving water productivity, there is a growing interest in "deficit irrigation" - an irrigation practice whereby water supply is reduced below maximum levels and mild stress is allowed with minimal effects on yield. This publication presents a range of studies, carried out for several crops and under different ecological conditions, showing the various options and practices of deficit irrigation and the impacts o

After recording a fiscal year (FY) 2000 federal budget surplus of $236.2 billion, the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) in January 2001 projected continued surpluses throughout the decade. However, enactment of major legislation during the 107th to 111th Congresses, in combination with changing economic conditions, altered the federal budget outlook for the decade dramatically. In FY 2002, the budget recorded a deficit for the first time since 1997, and the federal government has run a deficit in each subsequent year. This report examines to what extent major legislative changes from 2001 to 2

Uses a long term economic growth model to simulate 3 of many possible fiscal paths through the year 2025: one path that takes no action on the deficit, a path that "muddles through" with deficits at 3% of gross domestic product, roughly approximating deficits of recent years, and a path that reaches balance in 2002 and sustains it. Examines possible outcomes and affects of these paths. 8 charts and tables

This report provides a preliminary estimate for Congress that President Barack Obamażs health care bill would reduce the federal deficit by $138 billion over 10 years. The $940-billion legislation would provide coverage by 2016 to 32 million currently uninsured Americans, raising the number of insured to about 95%. Further, the report estimates that the legislation might continue to reduce the federal deficit in its second decade, and it discusses the several factors that would bring this about. Charts and tables.

Helps the U.S. Congress identify options that could be used to reduce the deficit. It updates previous work with new information, and systematically identifies in a single document the budgetary implications of selected program reforms discussed but not yet implemented or enacted. There are three broad themes: reassess objectives (terminate or revise services and programs provided); redefine beneficiaries (reconsider a program's intended audience); and improve efficiency (reconsider how a program or service is provided). Charts and tables.
