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.

The positions of American Progress, and our policy experts, are independent, and the findings and conclusions presented are those of American Progress alone.
