Defining a progressive economic strategy for America’s future

Economic Policy Institute founder  Jeff Faux  joined former White House economic advisor Gene Sperling  to discuss their differing economic strategies for Democrats and progressives at an event sponsored by the Campaign for America’s Future on Thursday, February 23, 2006 at the Economic Policy Institute in Washington, D.C.
