On January 13th, 2012, the Brookings Institution convened a panel of experts to discuss economic growth and innovation in the United States. Their number included John Surma of United States Steel, Thomas Connelly of DuPont, and John Bryson, the Secretary of the Department of Commerce. These discussions were videotaped and archived, and this website allows interested parties to view their remarks and the following Q&A sessions. Visitors can view the panel discussions and talks chronologically, and they include "Economic Growth and Job Creation" and "Global Competition and American Jobs". The site also includes four papers prepared for the event, including "Maintaining Employment in a Difficult Economy" by Elisabeth Jacobs" and "Identifying and Responding to the U.S. Metropolitan Employment Crisis" by Alan Berube. The site is rounded out by a list of "Related Content" including papers and briefings on technology and the innovation economy.
