White House Council of Economic Advisers
6pm: Social (hors d'oeuvres, open bar)
6:45pm: Family-Style Dinner
ColumbiaDC is excited to announce our signature annual event – the Hamilton Dinner. Please join us in person as we welcome Jared Bernstein for a fascinating and informative discussion about the state of the US economy against the backdrop of both increasingly complex geopolitical forces and current domestic issues.
As a lead economist with a front row seat to the Administration’s economic strategy and financial maneuvers, Mr. Bernstein will share his views on how forces such as global inflation, the war in Ukraine, the energy crisis, the shifting post-pandemic workforce and workplace environment, Supply Chain trends and the destructive forces of climate change all impact the US economy. As the US attempts to lead the free world through this perfect storm, Mr. Bernstein’s perspective is especially timely.
Time will be allocated for audience questions. We hope to see you there!
