Creating Inclusive Prosperity: Challenges and Solutions

Declining growth, the effects of the financial crisis, and increasing inequality have placed substantial economic stress on middle-class families across the developed world, with poor policy choices exacerbating the impact. In a new report, the Inclusive Prosperity Commission, or IPC—a trans-Atlantic board convened by the Center for American Progress—promises to meet these challenges head-on by offering innovative policy ideas that will create more-inclusive prosperity with good jobs, decent salaries, and a sustainable future.

Please join the Center for American Progress for the release of a major new report aimed at establishing sustainable and inclusive prosperity over the long term in developed economies with a specific focus on creating good middle-class jobs. At the event, the co-chairs and commissioners from the IPC will discuss the report in a conversation moderated by CAP President Neera Tanden.
