Presentation to American Chamber of Commerce Executives

My August  4th speech to the American Chamber of Commerce Executives’ convention, and the accompanying powerpoint, have now been posted at the Upjohn Institute’s website.

This speech integrates much of the material from this blog, and my book “Investing in Kids”, into a relatively short (20 minutes, 5 pages, 11 slides) presentation.  In particular, it incorporates my recent research on the benefits of preschool for children from middle-class families, and the spillover benefits of education for everyone in local economies.
