This is the March 17, 2021 hearing on "From Rescue to Recovery: Building a Thriving and Inclusive Post- Pandemic Economy," held before the U.S. House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Crisis of the Committee on Oversight and Reform. From the Opening Statement of James E. Clyburn: "Americans have testified--have suffered terribly during the Coronavirus pandemic. The virus has killed more than half a million of our fellow Americans and resulted in the loss of more than 22 million jobs, many of which have yet to come back. These losses of lives and livelihoods have not affected all Americans equally. Historic job losses have disproportionately impacted populations that were also hit hardest by the virus, including low-wage workers, Black Americans, and Latinxes. Women have suffered greater economic harm than men. [...] To succeed in building a strong and inclusive post-pandemic economy, we must, first and foremost, invest in our Nation's infrastructure, as many economists are urging. We must put Americans to work at good wages, repairing our country's crumbling roads and bridges, enhancing rail and transit, expanding a fuller access to broadband internet, upgrading water systems, building houses and schools, constructing state-of-the-art healthcare facilities, and transitioning to clean energy." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Joseph E. Stiglitz, William E. Springs, and Larry Kudlow.
