In a rapidly changing 21st-century economy, continuing to field a world-leading, skilled workforce is both more essential and more challenging than ever to the mission of delivering increasing prosperity for American families and preserving our nation’s global economic leadership. The US must confront its demographic challenges, as an aging population and slowing labor force growth pose long-run risks to the economic strength and fiscal health of the country.

To help confront these challenges and offer policy makers and business leaders balanced, reasoned solutions in the public interest, in October 2019, the Committee for Economic Development of the Conference Board (CED) released Growing the American Workforce: Bolstering Participation Is Critical for US Competitiveness and Economic Strength with recommendations focused on making it easier and more attractive for more Americans to find work and remain working. CED’s workforce subcommittee co-chair, Paul Decker, President and CEO of Mathematica, will join us to discuss this policy brief, its insights for what’s ahead, and how its recommendations could spur economic growth.
