The path to prosperity – Executive summary
This Council took as its key metric for success the goal of delivering an additional $15,000 in median household income above current projections by 2030. Realizing such an ambitious aspiration, amid rapid economic and societal change, will require focused, persistent, and concerted action. It will also require continued progress monitoring so that ineffective programs can be stopped. This Council believes that bold and mutually reinforcing initiatives like the ones released today and last October can help reset our country’s economic trajectory and help us achieve the inclusive growth that will provide the strongest foundation for our nation’s future prosperity.
