The U.S. economy appears to be in the early stages of recovery, but Main Street seems stuck in neutral. In this session, we’ll bring together a panel of experts to take stock of where we stand. Is the danger of a double dip behind us? Is the U.S. banking system once again on sound footing? When will we see the return of real job growth, a more normal housing market and healthy business lending? What was the impact of the stimulus, and what will happen when it runs out? What will be the ramifications of state and local budget crises? Can we afford to go back to our old reliance on consumer spending? Will exports be the new engine of growth? What policies should be pursued to restore the competitiveness of the U.S. over the long term?
