Imagine a team of doctors who think more poison is the solution to poisoning. That's precisely how government has managed the economic downturn. The market is trying to correct the distortions, even as government makes things even worse.

If permanent depression is not what the Obama team seeks, it is doing everything possible to bring one about in any case.

 Speakers at this one-day event will examine current economic conditions, delve into history to look at the conditions that made other recoveries possible, and present a road map for the restoration of true economic health and vibrancy.
