Panel discussion explores better economy, job prospects
Everyone wants a “better” economy, but what makes a “good” economy and how do we create one? The Pell Center will address these and other questions during “Creating Good Jobs and Broad Prosperity,” a panel discussion scheduled for 7 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 21 in the Young Building ballroom.
Are good jobs and a good economy created through tax cuts? Through policies to make labor organizing easier? Through tax incentives to bring businesses into a state? Through job standards that require a living wage? By waiting for entrepreneurs to create the next boom? These are challenging questions that require attention to both economic dynamics and preferences about the kind of society we want to live in.
Moderated by Joseph Grady, Pell Center fellow for public policy, the panel will include Kate Brewster, executive director of the Economic Progress Institute, and Doug Hall, executive director of the National Priorities Project.
