Creative Solutions for Building Wealth for Future Generations

This event has passed.

Longstanding wealth disparities in the U.S., especially pronounced along racial lines, have continued to expand during the COVID-19 pandemic and the “k-shaped” recovery. These trends are self-reinforcing—when Americans lack wealth, they struggle to invest in their future through educational attainment, business formation, or home purchases.

To form a more resilient economy for future generations, policymakers at the federal and state levels are considering innovative ideas to help more Americans build assets and improve their financial prospects. This event will bring together experts to discuss proposals that could dramatically boost short and long-term financial security for all Americans.
