In 2017, the most daunting task to confront our policymakers will be answering the call from voters to make capitalism work for all. Solving a challenge this big requires leadership from beyond the policy community. Business leaders on the front lines of the economy have the experience needed to course-correct our economic system. Yet for too long, too many have stayed on the sidelines and avoided the public square. How can they address these challenges in a polarized political environment?

The Committee for Economic Development of The Conference Board’s new book, "Sustaining Capitalism: Bipartisan Solutions to Restore Trust and Prosperity" looks at this question in depth.

 

Who Should Attend: Those with an interest in reforming public policy and/or reforming corporate governance policy.
