Venue: Aspen, Colorado

As the forces of globalization and technology transform the nature of work long considered the bedrock of economic stability in the U.S., more than half of Americans believe the country is on the wrong track. As more people feel left out, left behind, and worried about the future, there’s an urgent need to reverse course. At the Aspen Ideas Festival Markle President Zoë Baird and members of the Economic Future Initiative discussed the need to rekindle faith in the American Dream and introduced several key innovations that can enable Americans to flourish in today’s global networked economy.
