On June 19, the Center for American Progress and Democracy co-hosted a panel discussion on middle-out economics, the focus of the headline symposium in Democracy‘s Summer 2013 issue.
The event featured Neera Tanden, president of CAP; Bruce Bartlett, columnist for The Fiscal Times and a regular contributor to The New York Times‘s Economix blog; and Eric Liu, author and former speechwriter and deputy domestic policy adviser to President Clinton. The panel was moderated by Democracy editor Michael Tomasky, and was preceded by introductory remarks from Carmel Martin, executive vice president for policy at CAP, and Andrei Cherny, president and co-founder of Democracy.
Democracy‘s Summer 2013 symposium, “The Middle-Out Moment,” brought together a group of leading writers and thinkers to develop the progressive alternative to trickle-down economics.
