The American Economy & the Election
Jeff Immelt at the Washington Ideas Forum in late September 2016.
The economy is a key issue for American voters. In July, more than 80 percent of registered voters polled by the Pew Research Center said the economy was the number one issue, right after terrorism. This episode examines the country's workforce and what's influencing job creation and job loss. Featured speakers include General Electric CEO Jeff Immelt, US Secretary of Labor Thomas Perez, US Senator Mark Warner, and others. They spoke at the Washington Ideas Forum in late September. The event is held by The Atlantic in partnership with The Aspen Institute.
