Tomorrow morning, an impressive lineup of economics heavy-hitters will be at the National Press Club in Washington, DC to talk about the importance of full employment as a goal for this nation.

Lawrence Summers, former U.S. Treasury Secretary, will deliver the keynote address. This conversation is especially crucial in the context of continuing high unemployment and growing inequality, even after 5 years of economic recovery.

Convened by Jared Bernstein, Senior Fellow at the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities and previously Vice President Biden’s chief economic adviser, CEPR co-director Dean Baker will be one of the featured panelists.  They'll be joined by economists Laurence Ball, Kevin Hassett, and Susan Houseman, and other renowned public policy experts.

Jared and Dean are also co-authors of the timely and relevant book, Getting Back to Full Employment: A Better Bargain for Working People. Recently they gave a book talk, moderated by AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka:
