The Bush Institute-SMU Economic Growth Initiative and Bush Institute Education Reform Initiative joined forces to discuss how retraining America’s workforce is not enough to meet labor demands. The article, which was published in The Hill, provided a "three pronged approach to address the workforce pipeline: immigration and temporary workers, retraining and lifelong learning for current workers, and an education system that prepares our future workers." 

 On Monday, the National Review ran an op-ed by Managing Director of the Bush-SMU Economic Growth Initiative Matthew Rooney regarding the recent trade agreement between the EU and Japan. Rooney highlighted that the “U.S. sat on the sidelines,” and this signifies, “while the U.S. is pulling back from the global economy, other countries are not afraid to step forward.”
