Paying the Price of Washington’s Paralysis: A Panel Discussion
Start Date: 10/22/2013Start Time: 5:00 PM
End Date: 10/22/2013
Event Description:

$16.2 trillion in debt and a Millennial unemployment rate of %16.1?


At 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday, October 22, the entire Lehigh community is invited to kickstart an important conversation about their future. We’ll be joined by four nationally renowned speakers—all of whom have become leading voices on the issue of generational theft and generational inequality:

  • - The Home Depot co-founder Ken Langone
  • - Geoffrey Canada, president of Harlem Children’s Zone
  • - Stanley Druckenmiller, investor and philanthropist
  • - Bloomberg TV anchor Stephanie Ruhle ’97 (Moderator)

Unless leaders in Washington, D.C. put aside their differences, our Millennial Generation will likely face higher debt, fewer jobs, less wealth and lower wages. But those issues, along with a $16.2 trillion national debt, don’t have to be our reality. 

The time to act is now.

RSVPs recommended! A free Fud Truk BBQ networking reception will immediately follow the event, where you’ll be given a chance to mingle with our guests.

This important panel discussion is co-sponsored by the Class of 2017, the College Republicans and the College Democrats.
