FROM THE ECONOMY SUMMIT 2013: How Debt Restructuring Will Demolish the Mortgage Crisis
About this conference
New budget deals and future standoffs, transatlantic and transpacific trade liberalizing efforts, and economy-shaking policy debates have made the U.S. and global economic scene one of tension and consequence. The U.S. economy remains fragile with high joblessness and anemic levels of investment with much of the rest of the world mired in problems as well. While the picture is not all bleak, fundamental debates about the right mix of economic strategies and regulatory policies continue.
The Atlantic's 2014 Economy Summit will gather today's leading thinkers and policy practitioners on the budget, private and public debt, finance, investment in jobs, infrastructure and nextgen tech, and international trade. Join us on March 18 to analyze and examine these consequential challenges to a healthy U.S. and global economy.
