Global Connections

Global Connections is a monthly virtual event series hosted by Caroline Atkinson (RockCreek; PIIE Executive Committee) that explores new global thinking on macroeconomic policy goals and tools to achieve broad-based, sustainable, and equitable increases in living standards. Accumulated stress from a decade of sub-par growth, unequally distributed, has led to political division within countries and across borders. How should international economic policy respond?
