Rising prices on food and essential goods affect everyone, but they have a disproportionately high impact on people with low incomes. With recent inflation higher than it’s been in decades, some have pointed the finger at government spending and worry President Biden’s Build Back Better agenda will contribute to further price increases.
But the facts tell a different story. Join the Coalition on Human Needs for a webinar that explains the inflationary moment we are in now: its causes, solutions, and government actions to alleviate current hardships.
You’ll hear from Jared Bernstein, an economist for President Biden who is serving on the White House Council of Economic Advisers, Josh Bivens, Director of Research at the Economic Policy Institute, and Rakeen Mabud, chief economist at the Groundwork Collaborative. You'll learn how we can address concerns over inflation as we continue the push for truly transformational investments in health care, housing, child care, protecting against climate change, and much more.
Even if you can’t make the webinar, sign up and you'll be emailed a captioned recording of the webinar, slides, and other resources.
