On Tuesday, Jan. 11, for the eighth year in a row, The Institute of Public Policy (TIPP) brings together business and community leaders to review the region’s economy. “Global Change and the Future of the Greater Washington Economy,” held in the Johnson Center from 8 a.m. to noon, will feature an analysis of current trends and new ideas from a slate of researchers and strategic thinkers.

Among the participants will be three members of TIPP’s faculty: Francis Fukuyama, Stephen Fuller, and Roger Stough. Each will give a presentation on a different aspect of the region’s economy, including the impact of information technology, a review of how the greater Washington economy is performing, and the role of the Washington region in the Mid-Atlantic economy. All three will then take part in a panel discussion led by George Johnson, president emeritus of George Mason.

The deadline to register is Friday, Jan. 7. For more information, call x32122.
