Washington, D.C. — The Center for American Progress will host Jared Bernstein for a discussion on his timely new book, The Reconnection Agenda: Reuniting Growth and Prosperity. In his book, Bernstein, a senior fellow at the Center for Budget and Policy Priorities, argues that while the U.S. economy has many uniquely positive attributes, something is fundamentally wrong: Economic growth can no longer be counted on to deliver broadly shared prosperity. The policy agenda put forth by those in power has either proven to be inadequate or has been blocked by gridlocked politics.
The Reconnection Agenda offers concrete policy solutions that can get the United States to full employment, make monetary and fiscal policy work together more effectively, promote mobility, and break the “economic shampoo cycle” of bubble, bust, repeat that has characterized the U.S. economy for decades.
A panel of economic experts will explore how to separate the real reconnection agendas from the phony ones in order to move toward a more prosperous and equitable future.
