All in Politics

Over the last few weeks, I've had the opportunity to get out of Washington and talk with folks across the country about how we can create jobs and get our economy growing faster.  

This is a tough time for a lot of Americans – especially young people.  You've come of age at a time of profound change.  The world has gotten more connected, but it's also gotten more competitive.  And for decades, too many of our institutions – from Washington to Wall Street – failed to adapt, culminating in the worst financial crisis and recession since the Great Depression.  

For the last three years, we've worked to stabilize the economy, and we've made some progress.  But we still have a long way to go.  And now, as you're getting ready to head out into the world, many of you are watching your friends and classmates struggle to find work.  You're wondering what's in store for your future, and I know that can be scary.
