On January 18, the Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs will welcome Roger C. Altman, chairman and cofounder of Evercore Partners, and Jason Furman, senior fellow and director of the Hamilton Project at the Brookings Institution. Mr. Altman and Dr. Furman will discuss the prospects for restoring broad-based economic growth in response to the challenges of globalization and technological change.
Mr. Altman served two tours of duty in the U.S. Treasury Department, initially serving President Carter as Assistant Secretary for Domestic Finance and later serving President Clinton as Deputy Secretary. Since 1996, Mr. Altman has served as Chairman and co-founder of Evercore Partners. He is member of the Advisory Council to The Hamilton Project at the Brookings Institution.
Dr. Furman was recently named senior fellow and director of The Hamilton Project at the Brookings Institution. Previously he served as a Visiting Scholar at New York University's Wagner School and a non-resident Senior Fellow at the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities.
Dr. Furman served as Special Assistant to the President for Economic Policy in the Clinton Administration where he chaired the interagency technical working group on Social Security reform and was the principal White House staff member responsible for budget and tax issues.
The Hamilton Project at the Brookings Institution was launched in 2006 to advance an economic strategy to restore America's promise of opportunity, prosperity and growth—and inject new policy options from leading thinkers across the country into the national economic debate.
The event is at no cost and is open to the public.
