The Hamilton Project was launched this year to advance an economic strategy to restore America’s promise of opportunity, prosperity and growth-and inject new policy options from leading thinkers across the country into the national economic debate. At a forum on July 25, the project released its second set of policy papers, examining trade and government reform.
The forum began with a discussion of a new paper on trade authored by Peter Orszag, Brookings senior fellow and director of The Hamilton Project and Michael Deich, managing director of The Hamilton Project. A second panel featured ideas on modernizing government, instituting return-free tax filing and a look ahead to upcoming papers on restructuring unemployment insurance. The session concluded with a discussion of the challenges presented by a global economy featuring former Treasury Secretaries Robert E. Rubin and Lawrence H. Summers and former Deputy Treasury Secretary Roger C. Altman.
