14 million Americans are currently out of work and 8.5 million are underemployed. A double dip recession is on the horizon as the national GDP grew just 1.6% in the past 12 months. The high unemployment rates and looming double-dip recession leave Americans across the country asking: how do we turn the economy around?
To shed light on the debate, the American Action Forum will host a discussion with high-profile decision-makers and thought-leaders that play a direct role in shaping our job market and economy. Participants will present their plans to spur job creation and encourage the economy to grow more rapidly. After the discussion, panelists will answer questions from the audience.
Please join us for breakfast and an answer to America’s biggest question: How do we turn the economy around?
