Peter Orszag will be speaking at the third annual Bertelsmann Foundation Conference, presented by the Foundation and the Financial Times, on Thursday, April 13, 2011. The conference, entitled "Back to Work: Innovation, Investment & International Open Markets," will promote discussion of issues concerning employment based in both the private and public sectors.

The Conference will feature several sessions, each of which will assert the professional ideas of Orszag and other featured guests. These sessions include: Adding Jobs to the Recovery: What Works?, Innovation and Investment: BRICs and Brains, High-Wire Act: Balancing Growth and Inflation, and Busted: Can We Afford Ourselves? The dialogues started by these sessions will call upon the expertise of Orszag and other speakers to address these problems and begin moving towards a solution.

Orszag's background in economics is diverse, granting him the ability to make highly educated and researched recommendations concerning all of these topics. Having worked in both the private and public sectors, Orszag has collected a great deal of first-hand experience with budget development, unemployment solutions, investment options, the consequences of inflation, and the correct ways in which financial cut-backs should be implemented to most effectively achieve the desired result. Though his work has been controversial, the diversity of his experience in the field should prove valuable to the overall mission of the Conference.

In addition to Orszag, the Conference will feature the following speakers: John Engler, Stanley Fischer, Jacob Frenkel, Timothy Geithner, Christine Lagarde, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Tharman Shanmugaratnam, Gene Sperling, David Stockman, Lawrence H. Summers, Daniel Tarullo, and Congressman Henry Waxman. This list of speakers represents many important international leaders, in the public and private sectors, and will bring together a variety of perspectives in hopes of creating a fresh approach to the economic issues that the world faces today. By calling upon a diverse group of professionals, the Conference is attempting to take a step away from polarized political ideologies and base its findings only upon the best interests of the global economy.

The Bertelsmann Foundation is a private organization committed to addressing global social problems, such as unemployment. Founded by Reinhard Mohn in 1977, the Foundation works to develop solutions to issues that are relevant to today's world.    

The third annual Bertelsmann Foundation Conference will be conducted at 555 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW, Washington, DC on April 14, 2011. Running from 7:45 am to 3:45 pm, and completely on the record, the Conference will be streamed live on the Foundation's website, http://www.bertelsmann-foundation.org.
