Aspen IFS Hosts 2012 Financial Security Summit

July 10, 2012  • Institute Contributor

From July 10th to July 13th, 2012, the Aspen Institute Initiative on Financial Security (Aspen IFS) held its first Financial Security Summit at the Aspen Institute’s campus in Aspen, Colorado. The Financial Security Summit was an invitation-only gathering of top business leaders, experts, advocates, and media. The Summit advanced the dialogue on the public and private solutions that create more savings and wealth in American households, strengthen middle-class opportunity, and improve the economic future of the country.

In an election year with a budgetary showdown looming, Aspen IFS chose to host its first Financial Security Summit to bring thoughtful leaders together to wrestle with the contours of a new financial security vision that may be within political reach. At a time when the American economy is at a crossroads, Summit participants tackled the salient issues that affect the balance sheets of both American households and the country.
