• Thursday, December 3 Opportunity, Responsibility, and Security: A Consensus Plan for Reducing Poverty and Restoring the American Dream
    Republicans and Democrats, including the 2016 presidential candidates, broadly agree that the United States must address poverty and economic mobility more effectively. But gridlock and polarization often stymies real action. Scholars from the American Enterprise Institute and the Brookings Institution convened a working group of experts of all political stripes to craft a comprehensive policy plan to fight poverty and expand opportunity. The plan will be released at an event featuring Jonathan Haidt, professor at New York University; David Ellwood, dean of the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University; Ron Haskins, senior fellow at the Brookings Institution, and David Brooks, columnist at the New York Times. The event will be held from 9-11 a.m. EST at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C.
