Priming the Pump- Policymakers Should Consider with a Stimulus Package

http://www.americanprogress.org/issues/2009/01/lilly_stimulus.html Confronting the growing economic crisis will be the first order of business for the new Congress and the incoming Obama administration. Should the incoming administration work to deliberately increase the size of a federal deficit already projected by the Congressional Budget Office to exceed $1.2 trillion for the current year? How big should a stimulus package be? How should it be structured? These are the questions that a Center for American Progress panel on fiscal stimulus will grapple with at an upcoming event. Part of the discussion will involve what the Labor Department's December employment report will tell us about the future course of the economy and the need for stimulus. Featured Panelists: Jim Horney, Director of Federal Fiscal Policy at the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities who has previously served as Deputy Democratic Staff Director at the Senate Budget Committee and Chief of the Projections Unit at the Congressional Budget Office Ellen Hughes-Cromwick, Chief Economist for Ford Motor Company who also currently serves as President of the National Association for Business Economics and formerly served as Staff Economist on the President's Council of Economic Advisers Brian M. Riedl, (invited) Lead Budget Analyst at The Heritage Foundation and Grover Hermann Fellow in Federal Budgetary Affairs, Thomas A. Roe Institute for Economic Policy Studies Moderated by: Scott Lilly, Senior Fellow, Center for American Progress, former Clerk and Staff Director of the House Appropriations Committee and the Congressional Joint Economic Committee

Stem Cell Science and Innovation Done Responsibly and Ethically

http://www.americanprogress.org/issues/2009/01/stem_cells.html The time has come for the U.S. to renew its promise of global life sciences leadership. With the ascendancy of the Obama administration and a more progressive Congress, the opportunity for renewal has never been greater. The United States must now stake its claim as the world leader in regenerative medicine, which is almost certain to become a vital component of cutting edge biomedical innovation in the 21st century. To ensure that the research in this newly emerging field of the life sciences is conducted responsibly and ethically, the federal government must reform its stem cell research policy and fund embryonic stem cell research in a manner that is robust and comprehensive as well as cautious and principled. The greatest potential for regenerative medicine lies in the ability of scientists to tap into the process of cell differentiation and development. This can only be achieved by tracing the development of human cells from the very beginning. To do so, scientists need to conduct research on embryonic stem cells so that they can discover how these all-purpose ?luripotent?cells can change into any one of over two hundred different cell types in the human body. Indeed, this research will provide us with unprecedented insights into human development, how it can go wrong, and how it can be fixed?erhaps leading to 21st century medicine's biggest paradigm shift. Featured Panelists: Amy Comstock Rick, President, Coalition for the Advancement of Medical Research John Gearhart, Director, Institute for Regenerative Medicine and the James W. Effron University Professor, University of Pennsylvania Moderated By: Michael J. Rugnetta, Fellows Assistant, Progressive Bioethics Initiative, Center for American Progress
