Public Investment: Key to Prosperity

The next ADA Education Fund Congressional briefing will explore how public investment in physical infrastructure (roads, bridges, sewers, transit), as well as in human resources (such as through education and health care), makes the modern economy possible and leads to general prosperity. The event is intended to rebut the notion that “government doesn’t create jobs.”

When: Wednesday, March 14, 2012 – Noon to 1:00 PM
Where: Capitol Visitors Center, Room SVC 209-08

Confirmed Panelists:

  • Brian Miller, United for A Fair Economy; co-author “The Self-Made Myth” (moderator)

  • Albert Schlachtmeyer, Senior Advisor, International Executive Service Corps
  • Richard Sims, National Education Association
  • Debbie Weinstein, Coalition on Human Needs
