CAP Ideas 2019: Creating an All-In Economy

Sen. Jeff Merkley, Darrick Hamilton, and Betsey Stevenson sit down at the 2019 CAP Ideas Conference to talk about inclusive and forward-thinking economics as a means to heal the divides in our country.

This year at the CAP Ideas Conference, Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-OR); Darrick Hamilton, executive director of The Ohio State University’s Kirwan Institute for the Study of Race and Ethnicity; and economist Betsey Stevenson chatted with Center for American Progress President and CEO Neera Tanden about what an all-in economy looks like: a moral and just economy where Americans invest in the success of children of all socio-economic classes; where generational wealth can be attained regardless of race or ethnicity; where women don’t have to choose between working and raising a family; and where the social welfare of everyone from every background is upheld.
