MEDIA ADVISORY: AMERICAN ACTION FORUM HOSTS JOBS SUMMIT

SHINGTON- The American Action Forum today announced it will host a jobs summit titled “Changing Course: A Discussion on How to Turn the Economy Around” on Tuesday, September 13 from 9 a.m. – 11 a.m at the W Hotel in Washington, DC. Featured guests include House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, National Economic Council Deputy Director Jason Furman, and The Washington Post’s Chris Cillizza.

Fourteen million Americans are currently out of work and 8.5 million are underemployed. A double dip recession is on the horizon as the national GDP grew just 1.6% in the past 12 months. These dismal numbers leave Americans across the country asking: how do we turn the economy around?

To shed light on the debate, the American Action Forum will host a discussion with the high-profile decision-makers and thought-leaders that play a direct role in shaping our job market and economy.  Participants will present their plans to spur job creation and encourage the economy to grow more rapidly. After the discussion, panelists will answer questions from the audience.
