ITIF Event: The Digital Road to Recovery: A Stimulus Plan to Create Jobs, Boost Productivity and Revitalize America

As Congress considers a substantial stimulus package to get the economy moving, investing in new economy digital infrastructures will provide significant opportunities not just for short-term stimulus and job creation, but also longer term economic and social benefits. Please join us for the release of the ITIF report, The Digital Road to Recovery: A Stimulus Plan to Create Jobs, Boost Productivity and Revitalize America. The report provides a detailed analysis and estimate of the short-term jobs impacts of spurring investment in three critical digital networks: broadband, the smart grid (making the electric distribution system intelligent) and health IT, and outlines policy steps to spur this investment.
