A Conversation About the Economy We Need – Serialpressit (News)


R.S.V.P. for the live event Thursday, July 30, at 5 p.m. Eastern.

The New York Times Opinion section has been exploring how the United States can emerge from our current crises fairer and more resilient. The latest chapter of “The America We Need” series focused on the economy we need to live up to our nation’s founding ideals.

Join us for a free virtual event at 5 p.m. Eastern on Thursday, July 30, to hear from experts and U.S. workers who contributed to the series, and put your questions to them directly. David Leonhardt, a New York Times journalist, is hosting a conversation with Ai-jen Poo, executive director of the National Domestic Workers Alliance, and Robert B. Reich, a former U.S. secretary of labor and a professor of public policy at the University of California, Berkeley.

They will discuss what work will look like in the future and ways we can shape that. How can compensation be determined more fairly? Should companies return to earlier practices of sharing profits with employees? How can we ensure that more jobs provide the ability to feed and house a family with dignity and security? Mr. Leonhardt, who writes The Morning daily newsletter, will also speak with readers profiled in our article about how much money Americans actually make.

You can R.S.V.P. for this event here.
