The debate about future U.S. economic growth has been framed as a conflict between techno-optimists and techno-pessimists. But there are other powerful forces in addition to the pace of innovation that are pushing downward on economic growth. Professor Gordon will outline some of the major forces—including demographic changes, educational changes, rising inequality, and declining intergenerational mobility—and consider what they mean for future economic growth.

Led by: Robert J. Gordon, Stanley G. Harris Professor in the Social Sciences and Professor of Economics, Northwestern University
