US Economy

A National Agenda for Financial Inclusion

February 22, 2021  • The Aspen Partnership for an Inclusive Economy & Aspen Ideas Now

We are told that the fundamentals of the US economy are strong. After all, our resilient system of capitalism has survived the Great Depression and more. So why are so many individuals and communities left behind? Former White House Economic Advisor Adrienne Harris, Grameen America CEO Andrea Jung, and Mastercard Vice Chairman Mike Froman make the case for why this is an all-hands-on-deck moment for cross-sector collaboration. They explore how the digitization of our financial systems might translate to an equitable economy for those who have yet to realize the benefits of its growth. Presented by the Mastercard Center for Inclusive Growth, a collaborator in the Aspen Institute’s Global Inclusive Growth Partnership.
