Harvard Business School's U.S. Competitiveness Project co-chairs Michael E. Porter and Jan W. Rivkin meet with members from both sides of the aisle in Washington, D.C., to share HBS research and to propose policy measures for improving America's competitiveness.
The two-day agenda on Capitol Hill kicked off with a bi-partisan media briefing co-hosted by Reps. Tom Rice (R-SC) and John Delaney (D-MD) on July 9, 2013. This provided media with an exclusive opportunity to sit down and chat with Professor Porter and Reps. Rice and Delaney regarding America's long-term, structural challenges, the areas of existing consensus among policymakers on what must be done, and the specific legislative actions that need to be taken to reverse the current trajectory of the American economy.

This week I had the pleasure of participating in Harvard Business School's "America on the Move Summit" alongside business leaders like Jeff Immelt from GE and Mary Barra from GM. Our event came right on the heels of the President's announcement that he will push for a "grand bargain on jobs" to pair $302 billion of investment in our transportation infrastructure with corporate tax reform. And, I spoke about why investing in America's infrastructure is important to small businesses. —Karen G. Mills, Senior Fellow, Harvard Business School
