The Brookings Cafeteria

Sep 15, 2017

10 years after the Great Recession, new research from the Hamilton Project at Brookings scholars Jay Shambaugh and Ryan Nunn demonstrates that although the 'jobs gap' from the recession is now closed, millions of American men and women of prime working age remain out of the labor force.

Also in this episode, Molly Reynolds explains what's happening in Congress and John Villasenor discusses new research on private sector investment in health research and development.
