This event has passed.

With recent passage of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Framework and the prospect of President Biden’s Build Back Better agenda, legislative action is poised to dramatically impact American households and businesses in the coming months and years. Meanwhile, rising inflation levels, global supply chain shortages, and labor mismatches continue to challenge the economic recovery. Join Yahoo! Finance and the Bipartisan Policy Center as we break down the legislative landscape and current economic outlook with Phill Swagel, Director of the U.S. Congressional Budget Office. A panel discussion will follow to underscore the array of policy opportunities and economic challenges at play and outline solutions for consideration.
