About the Conference | Registration
The Cato Institute invites you to join us, and Michael Tanner, author of The Inclusive Economy: How to Bring Wealth to America’s Poor, for a community roundtable discussion that seeks to better understand the issues facing the Golden State and to discuss innovative ways to address these challenges.
Despite California’s impressive record of economic growth and innovation, poverty and inequality remain serious problems throughout much of the Golden State.  Indeed, California is tied with Louisiana for the nation’s highest poverty rate.  
As a nationally acknowledged expert on poverty, Tanner will share the results of his research on a national level, while encouraging California’s state and community leaders to share their expertise and lived experiences fighting these issues that are holding back too many in our society from reaching their full potential. Participants will be invited to share their thoughts and experiences as part of a larger conversation and evolving research program into California’s challenges and innovative solutions being pioneered in the Golden State.  We hope to hear from you on issues such as criminal justice reform, education, the housing crisis, and other barriers to a fully inclusive economy.
Please join the Cato Institute for this non-partisan, policy-focused discussion on poverty, inclusion, and combatting inequality in California today.
