Event description
Effectively Underemployed - Why American Workers Continue to Struggle Despite Strong Jobs Reports: Introducing The JQI

About this Event

Please join us for the historic launch of the U.S. Private Sector Job Quality Index (JQI)®, developed by researchers at the Program on the Law and Regulation of Financial Institutions and Markets of the Jack G. Clarke Institute at Cornell University Law School (Cornell-Clarke), the Coalition for a Prosperous America (CPA), the University of Missouri – Kansas City Department of Economics (UMKC), and the Global Institute for Sustainable Prosperity (GISP).

The JQI is a new economic indicator generated on a monthly basis. The JQI shows changes in the quality of the U.S. jobs base by tracking the relative numbers of high-wage/high-hours goods-producing (and some service) jobs, and low-wage/low-hour positions. The long term trend of increasing dominance of low-wage, low-hour jobs has resulted in low household income growth, higher income inequality and overall U.S. economic growth below its potential.

"Effectively Underemployed - Why American Workers Continue to Struggle Despite Strong Jobs Reports: Introducing The U.S. Private Sector Job Quality Index (JQI)®” will feature a presentation from the four authors.

Who: Daniel Alpert, adjunct professor at Cornell Law School, a senior fellow in macroeconomics and finance at the school’s Jack C. Clarke Business Law Institute (Cornell-Clarke) and founding managing partner of the investment bank, Westwood Capital, LLC.

Jeff Ferry, chief economist at the Coalition for a Prosperous America (CPA), a non-partisan association of U.S. labor and manufacturing interests.

Robert C. Hockett, the Edward Cornell Professor of Law, specializing in finance and economics, at Cornell Law School.

Amir Khaleghi, a Research Fellow at the Global Institute for Sustainable Prosperity (GISP) and a PhD student in economics at the University of Missouri – Kansas City (UMKC).

The program will be moderated by Tony Fratto, a managing partner at Hamilton Place Strategies, and the former deputy assistant and deputy press secretary to former United States President George W. Bush.

When: Nov. 13, 2019 (3pm - 5pm)

Where: Cornell Club, 6 E 44th St, New York, NY 10017

Please RSVP by Friday, November 8.
