Fiscal Challenge Team

The 2025 season will start in early January! Join our mailing list to stay up to date! Until then check out the Fed Challenge page for information about that competition starting in August!

The Challenge

The Fiscal Challenge is an annual nation-wide fiscal policy competition for undergraduate students. The goal of the challenge is for each team to develop a series of research backed policy proposals and projections that will reduce the national debt-to-GDP ratio to a certain target. The top six teams nationwide are invited to finals in Washington, DC where they present in person to a panel of economists.

Our Team

The Northeastern team has a strong record of placing well at finals, becoming national champions in 2022 and placing third overall in 2023 and 2024. We pride ourselves on being a team that is open and welcoming to new members regardless of their major, year, or previous experience. Reach out to or sign up for our mailing list to get updates about meetings.
