Thursday, September 6, 2018 (Lunch)
TIME: 11:30am – Bar opens; 12:15pm – Lunch served; 1-2pm – Presentation and Q&A
EVENT TYPE: Speaker Luncheon
Economic policy, like so much else, has fallen prey to partisan wrangling – with policymakers blaming and demonizing each other rather than working together to solve problems. Recent economic policy merely responds to the latest short-run crisis, rather than addressing the big challenges that loom ahead. Dr. Alice Rivlin will discuss what we all can do to get constructive economic policy-making started again, and will offer a bipartisan approach to rein in the growing debt, deal with climate change, and sustain Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security.
Dr. Rivlin has worked to improve economic policy-making in Washington for decades from multiple vantage points, including as Director of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) in the first Clinton Administration, and as Vice Chair of the Federal Reserve Board. She was the Founding Director of the Congressional Budget Office and also served as chair of the District of Columbia Financial Management and Assistance Authority.
PRICE: $25 Members; $30 Non-members (Includes lunch); $15 Young Dems. $10 Lecture only
