How can we create greater upward mobility today?
How can we avoid tech-driven disruption tomorrow?

“The defining issue of our time.” - Nouriel Roubini

Closing The Gap will bring together leading thinkers and thinking leaders to explore strategies to re-start the American Dream.

That dream has been disrupted. Our economy is being reshaped by the exponential growth of technology and the global equalization of wages, and upward economic mobility is rapidly becoming a thing of the past.

The growing income gap in our economy is challenging enough for the average hard-working American. But the rapid automation of many human tasks is already overwhelming our ability to adapt, and robots and software could continue to affect an increasing percentage of our workforce.

This lack of opportunity is the most critical challenge that our economy is facing today. We need to gain an understanding about what is happening in our economy, and come up with big ideas to help re-start the American Dream.
