The economy of the U.S. is growing strongly, powered by the introduction of information age technology. The economies of other countries are also benefiting from technology and the spread of free markets. What trade, tax, energy, and regulatory policies should the next president pursue to keep the boom going? What kind of federal government interventions should he shun to avoid stifling the economy?
A panel discussion featuring representatives of the Bush and Gore campaigns will address these and related issues.
This forum focuses on the seventh of eight election-year issues which Brookings is examining in depth as part of its P2K, Priorities 2000, project, the purpose of which is to encourage a serious and informed discussion of the most pressing issues facing the next president.
