Overview

On December 14 and 15, 1992, just over one month before he was to take the Oath of Office, President Bill Clinton was joined by Vice-President Al Gore, major cabinet appointees and 329 of the nation's top economists, corporate executives, labor leaders and others for an incisive and comprehensive discussion of the problems facing the U.S. economy and the rough choices that lay ahead for his incoming administration. The array of speakers at the Little Rock Economic Conference, in the words of a New York Times editorial, provided government, business and the American public with "a valuable national conversation" and demonstrated that President Clinton, who "displayed a remarkable grasp of big themes and small details...[was] up to the task" of making the important economic decisions.

Editorial Reviews

Mary Carroll
Add to the shelf of Clintonomics artifacts this transcript of the preinaugural economic conference in Little Rock last December. The volume includes statements or contributions from about half of the 350 cabinet nominees, business and labor executives, academics, and community activists who attended. Produced quickly, the transcript includes errors and anomalies, mainly in the spelling of speakers' names or the statement of their credentials. Like the conference itself, however, this transcript is a significant contribution to an essential national debate about the future of the U.S. economy: macro and micro, short- and long-term, private and public, import and export, deficits and stimuli, technology and environment, jobs and education. Historians will someday trace the development of the Clinton administration's economic programs from Little Rock experiences through campaign rhetoric, "Putting People First", and this conference, and then on to specific pieces of legislation as proposed and enacted. "New Beginning" provides a solid introduction to the range of "expert" opinion.
