Are America's Brightest Days Behind Us? Challenges in the U.S. Economy

Date: 09/12/2014

Time: 1:00 PM

Location: Carlson Private Dining Room Carlson School of Management

Cost: Free


For generations, America was a beacon of prosperity and economic growth to the rest of the world. But the opening years of the 21st century have brought economic recessions, followed by historically weak recoveries and high long-term unemployment. Is this record of economic drift a temporary lull, or a sign that America's brightest days are behind us? What can be done to revive America? One of the country's leading economic policy makers, Doug Holtz-Eakin from the American Action Forum, tackles these seminal questions.

This event is part of the Vin Weber lecture series, a sequence of public forums moderated by former Congressman Vin Weber that feature thought-leaders from around the United States.
