    • “The EARN “Future of Work in the States” initiative is to provide a foundation of information and imagination to support a collective effort and discussion that paints a picture of the economy that we want 30 years from now. This would be “An Economy that Works for All,” a “high road” economy that delivers high productivity growth and improvemetns in living standards and quality of life (including shorter work time in multiple forms) to most Americans.”
