A New Deal for the 21st Century

An upcoming conference, related to Ryan Dodd’s feature article in the current issue of D&S, A New WPA?, which addresses “employer of last resort” policies for full employment.

A New Deal for the 21st Century

As income and wealth inequality approach levels not seen since the dawn of the Great Depression, we invite you to participate in a one-day conference on April 9: A New Deal for the 21st Century.

Our partners at the Roosevelt Institution are marking the 75th anniversary of the New Deal by exploring policy ideas that will make up a new social contract for future generations, and EPI is honored to be among the event’s co-sponsors.

The lineup of speakers is impressive and includes our President, Dr. Lawrence Mishel. Best of all, registration is free!

Join us on April 9 and spread the word to all who would be interested.
