Jobs and the Economy

There are several complex questions at the heart of economic discussions, all of which are very personal for many people. Often an individual’s stance on any economic question comes down to which economic system they believe works the best overall or will benefit them the most. But that more fundamental question is often overlooked and replaced with more narrow questions such as these: Should the wealthy pay more in taxes than the middle class? Should the government cut spending rates to decrease the national debt? Should we raise the minimum wage?

Virtual LRC Conversation: Crony Capitalism

Living Room Conversations are a conversational bridge across issues that divide and separate us. They provide an easy structure for engaging in friendly yet meaningful conversation. These conversations are open to anyone and everyone - no prior training or experience is needed to participate. You may find that you have similar views to those in your conversation or you may find that you are as different as can be. It can be a valuable experience to let go of your expectations of what the conversation should be and focus on what it is in the moment. The National Week of Conversation topics have been chosen to encourage participation and allow for everyone to be able to share their own life experiences and viewpoints as well as actively listening to those of others.

Join us for this online (Zoom video) Living Room Conversation on the topic of Crony Capitalism.
