Economic Prosperity and Social Connection

Economic factors play a key role in shaping Americans’ social connections, as when stagnant wages depress marriage rates or erratic scheduling makes it difficult to connect with friends or attend regular community gatherings. This panel will explore the role of economic conditions and labor markets in helping or hindering flourishing for working Americans today, and will consider what policymakers, community leaders, and business leaders can do that would actually help.
