As debate on the recession moves from “if” to “when” to “how long,” The New School’s Schwartz Center for Economic Policy Analysis (CEPA) and the New America Foundation invite top economists and business executives to share their perspectives. The discussion centers on the economic and political realities behind the debate on how best to stimulate the economy, including how a major public infrastructure investment might serve as a centerpiece of a longer-term recovery program. Participants include Laura D’Andrea Tyson, professor and former Dean of the Haas School of Business at the University of California at Berkeley; Lawrence Mishel, President of the Economic Policy Institute; Bob Kerrey, president of The New School; Teresa Ghilarducci, the Irene and Bernard L. Schwartz Professor of Economic Policy Analysis at the New School for Social Research; Tom Gallagher, an American politician from the U.S. state of Florida, most recently holding the position of Chief Financial Officer of the State of Florida, and; Heidi Crebo-Rediker, co-director of New America’s Global Strategic Finance Initiative. This event was held at The New School.
