Techonomy Detroit 2014: Was It Just a Dream?

Date: Sep 16 2014

Time: Full-day Session

Venue: Detroit, Michigan

At Techonomy Detroit, Markle joins other leaders and thinkers from business, technology, and government to share views on how to move the U.S. and the world into an urbanized, technologized, inclusive future. The conversations focus on how technology can boost U.S. economic growth, job creation and urban revival.

Was It Just a Dream?
The American Dream—that hard work could lead anyone to prosperity, success and upward mobility—feels increasingly irrelevant for a growing and frighteningly large group of Americans. What will people do to attain economic and social security? Will the middle class survive? What new policies and strategies could we devise to help keep the American Dream alive?
