The Economic Crisis and the U.S. Policy Response:
Just Right, Too Little or Too Much?
Date: Thursday June 2, 2011
Time: 12.00pm – 2.00pm
Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars
5th Floor Conference Room
1300 Pennsylvania Ave., NW, Washington, DC 20004
Ron Blackwell – Chief Economist, AFL-CIO; Uri Dadush – Director, International Economics Program, Carnegie Endowment for International Peace; Michael Lind – Director Economic Growth Program, New America Foundation; Prakash Loungani – Advisor, Research Department, International Monetary Fund
Moderator: Thomas Palley – New Rules for Global Finance and New America Foundation
The forum will assess the U.S. policy response to the economic crisis from several different points of view – political, intellectual and institutional. The goal is to provoke a constructive assessment what has been done well, what has been lacking, and how policy should adjust in light of these competing assessments.
Lunch will be provided at 12.00pm. The forum will begin promptly at 12.15pm.
Space is limited. RSVP required to Jamie Baker (firstname.lastname@example.org)
