From our colleagues at the N.C. Budget and Tax Center:
Get your tickets today for a conversation about what’s next for North Carolina’s economy
What will it take for North Carolina’s economy to work for everyone not just a few? The state’s economy is recovering along with the nation but there are troubling signs that the expansion is not reaching many in North Carolina.
Join us for a special keynote address and conversation with national policy expert Jared Bernstein.
January 21st at 11:30 am
McKimmon Center at NC State University
1101 Gorman Street, Raleigh, NC
Individual Tickets $20
Student Tickets $10
Jared Bernstein, Senior Fellow at the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, will share his research on the state of the economy, insights into North Carolina’s performance relative to the nation and policy ideas that will improve employment outcomes and support broad economic well-being across the state.
The Budget & Tax Center will also offer a brief presentation on how we can ensure opportunity and prosperity are broadly shared among all North Carolinians.
It’s clear that a new approach to our economy is needed. Median incomes and wages continue to fall, costs for the basics are rising and many of the pathways out of poverty or protections for people struggling have been eroded due to tax cuts and flawed policy choices at the state level. Beyond the rhetoric, the facts on the ground demonstrate that North Carolina has not connected all communities and provided opportunities for everyone to be successful in the economy.
