Following his address, a panel, including AEI’s Andrew Biggs and Desmond Lachman, exchange views on these challenges and propose a number of solutions, ranging from labor market reforms to stimulating economic growth through existing Medicaid reforms and the earned income tax credit.

The panel features Andrew Biggs (AEI, Financial Oversight and Management Board for Puerto Rico), Desmond Lachman (AEI), Anne Krueger (Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies), and Antonio Weiss (Harvard Kennedy School), and is moderated by Alex J. Pollock (R Street Institute).
