White House: Did You Miss the President’s Speech on America’s 21st Century Economy?


President Obama just spoke to entrepreneurs at Northwestern University in Illinois. In his remarks, he made the case for what has always fueled America’s leadership: America’s economic greatness.

Our economy is stronger now than when the President took office during the Great Recession. Businesses are creating more jobs, our manufacturing sector is booming, and our nation is more energy independent than ever before.

And while we’ve made great strides, we aren’t there yet — to build an economy that works for every American, we must invest in key economic cornerstones that will create security and opportunity for America’s middle class.
