On TV: US Economy - Solutions to Crisis
The economy is on everyone’s mind. And that’s why it is the focus of tonight’s episode of The Aspen Institute Presents: Economy Solutions to Crisis.
The show opens with David Rubenstein and Mortimer Zuckerman discussing whether or not our recession is actually a modern-day depression. What are the four key post-recession issues that we absolutely have to fix?
Tonight's episode also includes Howard Shultz talking about our collective responsibility and how citizenship must outweigh partisanship; Arianna Huffington describes how we can create jobs for young people; Tyler Cowen makes the case that innovation isn’t happening to the degree that it did a century ago; several mayors put forth solutions that are working in our nation's cities; and Lawrence Summers injects a bit of optimism as he lays out the case for why we’ll remain preeminent; and much more.
