The Markle Initiative for America’s Economic Future in a Networked World was created in 2013, and is co-chaired by Zoë Baird and Howard Schultz. The goals of this initiative are to envision and ultimately be a catalyst for an America with broad participation in the global digital economy; and to seek scalable solutions to reinvigorate the American Dream, imagining new strategies for jobs and economic security that can help propel our country into a future where the next generation will once again be better off than the last. Expert advisors from a wide range of disciplines will inform this Initiative.
