Panel I: Technology and Evolving Labor
Despite media-driven myths of American economic decline,
record-high employment and surprisingly strong labor productivity
growth reveal a very prosperous future for the American worker, but
not a future devoid of risks. Old skills become irrelevant faster
and more suddenly, and the pressures of a globalized labor market
are growing. What are the skills and jobs of the future?
Panel II: Labor Laws - Ripe for Reform? -
Are federal labor laws relevant for the 21st Century? Panelists
will explore the need to reform federal laws regarding pensions and
other benefits, immigration, and unemployment insurance.
