Club members Ray Boshara MPA 1996 and Ali Thomas EDM 2013 have invited our community to the following event at the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis:

"Thrivers vs. Strugglers: A Growing Economic Divide - And What to Do about It"
with Oren Cass, JD 2012, (May 23, 4 - 6 pm)

How is it that so many people are struggling financially despite a growing economy, higher living standards, and a rising stock market? Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell observed that the economy is in a “good place” but warned that inequality is the nation’s biggest challenge over the next decade.  Please join us from 4:00 – 6:00 p.m. on Thursday, May 23 for a book event with Oren Cass (JD ‘12), author, The Once and Future Worker, at the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis in downtown (free parking included).
