Across the nation, many American communities continue to struggle to reach their full economic potential, especially in the wake of the recession and the structural changes to the economy. Yet largely untapped resources exist in private sector investor networks, and emerging policy mechanisms could facilitate connections between financial resources and the communities that need them most.

The Atlantic, along with our underwriter the Economic Innovation Group, convened for a bipartisan conversation around legislative efforts and public-private partnerships promoting sustained, strategic investments to address the challenges facing America's struggling cities.
