VIRTUAL EVENT

Window On: The Future of America's Heartland

JUNE 26, 2019

Welcome

A great deal of attention has been paid in recent years to the divergence in economic performance among US regions.

For America’s Heartland (which consists of the four Central Census regions), beliefs that the region is dominated by “old” industries and lacks skilled workers has been used to explain why it has lagged other parts of the US in economic and productivity growth. In reality, this is a highly diverse region with significant economic vitality.

Join our expert panel as they explore:

  • How to understand America’s Heartland as an “economic entity”
  • The region's challenges and ways to deal with them
  • The Heartland’s future: converging to, or diverging from, the coastal regions?

Who Should Attend: Those with an interest in the economic, business, and policy direction of the US and Global economy
