Investors and economic and policy thinkers agree that America’s still great — but faces some challenges
by Andrea Riquier
For decades, investor David Kotok has gathered dozens of leading minds in finance, economics, and policy at a rustic rural Maine camp to fish, meet and talk about the state of the world.
This year, the coming presidential election loomed over “Camp Kotok,” held August 4-8 in Grand Lake Stream. And so MarketWatch asked several participants the same question: Does America need to be made great again?
Most echoed a resounding “no.” But they also shared a view of stiff challenges ahead and wondered how to jump-start U.S. growth while making sure the economic gains from that growth are more equally shared.
