President Clinton to Discuss Economics at Georgetown University

October 24, 2011

WHO: President Bill Clinton (F’68)
WHAT:

The William J. Clinton Foundation will host a symposium titled “Clinton-Gore Economics: Understanding the Lessons of the 1990s” at Georgetown University. Panelists will discuss Washington’s role in spurring economic growth, the Clinton administration’s economic record and approach to the emergence of a global economy, the upheaval wrought by the information age, and the challenge of building a bridge to the 21st century.

The event also marks the twentieth anniversary of then-Governor Clinton’s New Covenant speeches, in which he outlined his governing philosophy. Those three speeches were delivered in the same room during the fall of 1991.
