Concerns about growing numbers of American service and manufacturing jobs moving overseas have become a central theme in the political and economic debates over the jobless recovery, debates that have intensified as the 2004 elections approach.

Senator Max Baucus (D-Mont.), the senior Democrat on the Senate Finance Committee, will appear at a Brookings briefing on the issue to present a set of policy proposals that aim to keep and create jobs in America. Sen. Baucus will be joined by a panel of experts that will assess his proposals as well as offer their own diverse perspectives on the offshoring issue.
