It Is Time For A New Conversation
Amid the biggest economic transformation in a century, the challenge of our time is to make sure that all Americans benefit from the wave of digital revolutions around the world that have permeated and upended modern life. Yet today’s economic arguments seem stuck. We need a new vision of a hopeful future and a new action agenda.
We have been here before. A hundred years ago, America experienced the greatest economic transformation and technological revolution in its history. The transformation of the past 20 years— as the world has moved through the information era into the digital age— has turned our life and work upside down once again. It is a time of tremendous change but also of tremendous possibility.
Set against the history of how Americans succeeded once before in remaking their country, America’s Moment is about the future. It describes how the same forces of change—technology and a networked world—can become tools that can open opportunity to everyone.
