Several CEOs of national public companies and other national business leaders and advisors, including Bass, Berry & Sims attorney Jim Cheek, issued a call for action for a comprehensive approach to reinvesting in the long-term health of the nation — better infrastructure, R&D, basic science and worker training. In addition, the group recommended a smarter tax policy to pay for these projects and to fix our system of long term investment.
The call for action was issued through The Aspen Institute's American Prosperity Project – a nonpartisan framework for policy action that is working to reposition America to lead the world in long-term investment, innovation and economic opportunity in the 21st century.
