Debate: Progressive Economics and the Great Recession
9:30 - 11:00 a.m Information Technology and Innovation Foundation 1101 K Street (Suite 601A) Washington, DC 20005
The Great Recession has given way to a less-than-great recovery and the pressure is on for Washington to respond. ITIF President Rob Atkinson has taken on traditional Keynesians for pushing for additional public pump priming and for what he sees as their focus on distribution of the economic pie rather than the growth of the pie. But Dean Baker, co-director of the Center for Economic and Policy Research, rejects Atkinson's critique. The event was moderated by American Public Media's John Dimsdale.
