While Congress fiddles, America burns. Jobs remain scarce, foreclosures rampant, mortgages under water, pensions fragile, wages too low. Our infrastructure remains in decay. And we are still not meeting the economic or national security challenges that we have inherited from a decade of frustrating global failures.

On Tuesday, November 12, Economists for Peace and Security and the Economic Growth Program of the New America Foundation present a symposium on jobs, investment, and security – and why they should trump today’s disastrous preoccupations with budget balance, spending cuts, sequestration, and the debt ceiling.

The symposium’s keynote address will be delivered by Dr. Jason Furman, Chair, Council of Economic Advisers. The conversation will also feature panel discussions with many of America’s most distinguished policy economists, journalists, and security specialists.
