Sustained economic growth sets the foundation for global prosperity and the promotion of democratic ideals and cooperation. The framework has been stressed recently in the face of trade tensions, eroding alliances, and rising economic nationalism. Arranged around the theme of “2020 Vision: Examining Policy Prescriptions,” NABE’s 36th Annual Economic Policy Conference provides a forum for policymakers, business leaders, and economists to engage in candid and practical discussions of the challenges faced in fiscal, monetary, and regulatory policy arenas, as well as the impacts on immigration and capital flows, budget deficits, and climate change, as these dual goals of growth and security are pursued globally.
