The recent national and local elections have placed a focus on providing policies that support economic opportunity for the lower- and middle-income rungs of the household income ladder. With growing populist movements on the left and right, arguments in support of socialism and some sort of “stakeholder capitalism” and “America First” trade policy have become prominent.
Traditional support for free market capitalism has come under withering attack. Of course, these foundational debates are occurring in the midst of a global pandemic, where small businesses and broader employment rates have been adversely impacted.
As we look toward a “post-COVID era”, how should policymakers be thinking about “getting America back to work?
Join Pepperdine School of Public Policy (SPP) dean Pete Peterson, and noted business leader and SPP Senior Fellow, Andy Puzder, for this online conversation to discuss the economic lessons we’ve learned from the last couple years and how we can best respond in the months and years ahead.
Date/Time: Tuesday, FEB 16 / Noon – 1p PT
This is intended to be a “seminar class” format with optional pre-reading sent to all registrants prior to the event.
Please contact me if you have any questions.
