Making a Comeback: A Return to Jobs and Growth
The fourth annual Bertelsmann Foundation-Financial Times financial conference was held April 18-19, 2012 in Washington, DC. The event kicked off with an evening reception for more than 400 people at the US capital’s National Portrait Gallery. IMF Managing Director Christine Lagarde was the guest of honor and spoke to participants on the eve of the Fund’s spring meeting.
The conference itself was held the following day at the Newseum. Sessions focused on labor-market reform and innovation, global financial governance, the euro crisis, and the presentation of a Bertelsmann Foundation report on establishing INCRA, an international non-profit credit rating agency.
