Date: Tuesday, March 4, 2014
Time: 12:00 PM–6:00 PM
Location: Harvard Club of New York City
Address: 27 W 44th Street (at 5th Avenue)

As the U.S. climbs its way out of the Great Recession, many have argued “A Tale of Two Recoveries.” On one hand, 2013 was the “Year of the Bulls,” with markets soaring to record heights. At the same time, the labor force, productivity and consumer spending continue to lag, factors that all contribute to an overall stall in economic growth.

So, what does the future hold for our economy? Are we, as Larry Summers has recently argued, in an era of “secular stagnation?” Or is weak growth a cyclical phenomenon, with an inevitable return to prosperity?

Economic thought leaders will present their unique insights and offer attendees a chance to ask questions directly.
