Can America win the economic future?

"Yes," says the Architect of Inclusive Competitiveness®, Johnathan M. Holifield. In this presentation, the Innovation Economy leader, civil rights advocate and former NFL athlete, shines a bright light on the need to increase the economic productivity of disconnected Americans to improve their quality of life and help our nation sustain global economic leadership.

Although the economic narrative of the 20th century served America well, it will not – indeed, it cannot – meet the needs of the 21st century. Johnathan calls for "All Hands On Deck" strategies and lays out an exciting way forward for America to win the future.

Johnathan presents a compelling model for new economic narratives and community systems, along with an action framework for leaders in business, government, technology, education, philanthropy and the community. His presentation is essential to hear for anyone concerned about shared prosperity and the economic future of the U.S.
