About this webinar
New York now faces the monumental task of protecting public health amid the coronavirus pandemic while mitigating the enormous economic pain of a near-total shutdown. But in the weeks and months ahead, city and state policymakers and economic development officials will need to start taking the crucial steps to restart the city’s economy and plan for a long-term recovery. This forum will explore what should be done.
Our forward-looking discussion will delve into the strategies, policies, and investments needed to reignite the city’s economy, restore critical industries that have been seriously damaged during this crisis, put New Yorkers back to work, ensure that the recovery is inclusive, and strengthen parts of the economy that may prove resilient to future challenges. Drawing from hands-on personal experience, the panelists will examine what can be learned from how New York and other cities responded to previous recessions and how those lessons should shape the city's recovery in 2020 and beyond.
Confirmed speakers include:
Center for an Urban Future is a catalyst for smart and sustainable policies that reduce inequality, increase economic mobility, and grow the economy in NYC.
