U.S. Economy and Jobs
This program was part of a Brookings Institution day-long discussion on U.S. economic growth through innovation.
Following opening remarks, economist Alice Rivlin and business executives talked about the causes of the economic recession of the previous few years, and its resulting budget cuts around the nation and lingering high unemployment in its aftermath. Topics included the housing market, the 2009 economic stimulus, immigration, and regulation. They answered questions from audience members.
