On Thursday, starting at 4 p.m. E.S.T., Andrew Ross Sorkin and the DealBook team convene business, policy and political leaders for a day dedicated to shifting stale perspectives, rebooting vital processes and setting out a pragmatic plan for tomorrow.
A new America is emerging. From China and Russia policy to shifting workplace dynamics, cryptocurrency to climate change, the foundational thinking that we’ve always relied on to solve problems is showing its age — and hindering our progress.
What’s the smartest way forward? The conversation starts here. Don’t miss a word.
Here is the lineup (all times Eastern):
4:10 P.m.-4:40 P.m.
Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen
The Treasury secretary is crafting economic policy to address inflation, an unsettled labor market, sanctions against Russia and more. How does she balance the administration’s priorities with the needs of business and everyday Americans?
4:40 P.m.-5:10 P.m.
Howard Schultz of Starbucks
He returned from retirement to lead Starbucks as its chief executive, facing a number of challenges. How will the coffee chain long known for “exceeding the expectations” of its employees contend with new demands from labor, the culture wars and China’s rising role in global business?
5:10 P.m.-5:30 P.m.
Senator Chris Murphy
The school shooting in Uvalde, Texas, brought back horrifying memories of a similar attack in Connecticut, and the Democratic senator from that state discusses the long-term toll these attacks can have on communities and the pragmatic legislative solutions that can make a difference.
5:30 P.m.-6:00 P.m.
