Update: Media Advisory: Clinton Foundation to Host a Symposium on the Lessons of Clintonomics

New York, NY
Press Release

Participants Include Alan Blinder, Robert Rubin, Gene Sperling, Laura Tyson, and other Clinton administration alumni

New York, NY — On October 28, the Clinton Foundation will host a symposium titled “Clinton-Gore Economics: Understanding the Lessons of the 1990s” at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C. The program will include a speech by President Clinton and two panel discussions focused on the Clinton administration’s economic record and approach: 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 at Georgetown, in the very same room as Friday’s symposium, during the fall of 1991.

Other participants include former Treasury Secretary Robert Rubin, former Congressman Scott Murphy, and John J. DeGioia, President of Georgetown University. The first panel, “The Foundation: The 1993 Budget Fight and the Beginnings of a New Economy,” moderated by John Podesta, will feature Alan Blinder, Marjorie Margolies, Thurgood Marshall, Jr., Bruce Reed, and Laura Tyson. The panel is open press.

The second panel, “The Bridge: Harnessing the Innovation of the 1990s,” moderated by Erskine Bowles, will include Henry Cisneros, Mickey Kantor, Rodney Slater, Gene Sperling, and Neera Tanden. The panel is open press.
