Pinched: How the Great Recession Has Narrowed our Futures and What We Can Do About It

Monday, August 8, 3:00 – 4:30 pm

An outgrowth of Don Peck’s influential 2010 Atlantic cover story, “How a New Jobless Era Will Transform America,” Pinched details how continuing weakness in the wake of the crash is changing American family, community, politics, and culture — and recommends public actions to restore the country to health and place its economy on firmer footing in future decades.

Larry Summers says of the book, “Every era has its politico-economic text.  Don Peck may well have written the one for the post-financial crisis era. His concerns for what a weak economy will leave in its wake are proper and pressing. We would make wiser policy if every policymaker read this brilliant book.”

Featuring: Don Peck, Features Editor, The Atlantic

Don Peck is a features editor at the Atlantic, where he has worked as an editor for seven years. Mr. Peck handles most of the Atlantic’s coverage of the economy. He has a B.A. in government modified with economics from Dartmouth College and a Masters of Public Affairs with a focus on international development from the Woodrow Wilson School at Princeton University.
