On Wednesday, July 11, Roosevelt Institute Senior Fellow Mark Schmitt will join the New America Foundation for its event, "Jobs are Not Enough: Why are the Campaigns Ignoring Americans' Lost Wealth?" at the New America offices in Washington, DC. The 2012 presidential race is shaping up to be about one thing: jobs. But are jobs enough to get this economy going when the average American feels broke? Panelists will look at questions including: What can government do to help ordinary Americans avoid ruinous debt and rebuild their wealth? Can a tax code that directs nearly half a trillion dollars in investment subsidies mostly to Americans who are already well-to-do be reformed to provide an opportunity to help average Americans build wealth? Could such an agenda put the economy back on a path to sustained, broad-based economic growth?
