ABOUT THIS SERIES
Rebuilding the Global Economy, launched by the Peterson Institute for International Economics (PIIE) in October 2020, is a series that lays out for policymakers heading into 2021 what needs to be repaired by defining critical and practical priorities, and offering credible solutions. These PIIE-led proposals will take the form of memoranda to policymakers and policy briefs, accompanied by data visualizations, blogs, videos, and virtual events with experts. The virtual discussions will outline a multi-faceted set of policy responses to achieve sustainable, inclusive economic growth and improve human welfare.
