WASHINGTON – On Thursday, August 22, 2013, Treasury Secretary Jacob J.
Lew will discuss the state of the U.S. economy in remarks before the
Commonwealth Club at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, California.
The Secretary will discuss recent efforts to strengthen the economic recovery
and address the primary economic imperatives facing the country, including the
need for Washington to avoid self-inflicted wounds that could impede economic
growth. He will also highlight the President’s plan to strengthen the middle
class and create jobs by improving the nation’s infrastructure, enlarging our
manufacturing base and developing innovative technologies at home, while
increasing our exports abroad. Following his remarks, Secretary Lew will
participate in a moderated discussion with Adam Lashinsky of Fortune Magazine.
As part of his visit to the San
Francisco Bay Area, Secretary Lew will also tour the AT&T Foundry in Palo
Alto. The AT&T Foundry innovation centers are dedicated to cultivating the
development of cutting edge technologies from inception to market by bringing
together engineers, developers, designers and other skilled experts in
technology. The program is fueled by a collaborative investment of nearly
$100 million from AT&T, Ericsson, Alcatel-Lucent, Cisco, Amdocs, Intel and
