On December 10, The Atlantic hosted an afternoon of panel discussions and keynote interviews focused on restoring America’s competitive edge in trade and high-wage job creation in the Pavilion Room of the Ronald Reagan Building. The program examined how the regulatory environment impacts American competitiveness by showcasing examples of effective as well as problematic federal and state policies, and studying how they can be shaped to best encourage business investment and growth. The program also assessed strategies for how best to revitalize a U.S. economy under stress at home and globally.
