*Summary: *Over the past year the Harvard Business School has led a series of discussions over how to make the U.S. economy competitive and capable of achieving a high standard of living for American workers and families. I’ve contributed to that dialogue at their request by focusing on workforce issues. My main message is that we need a new Jobs Compact to close the deficit in the number of jobs needed in the economy and to ensure we reverse the long term decline in the quality of jobs available to American workers. I applaud my HBS colleagues for taking up this discussion, one that I believe needs to feature more prominently in the education of current and future managers and business leaders. Recently *Harvard Magazine *, a publication that goes out to all Harvard alumni, did an interview with me that summarizes my views on what we need to do to get the economy and labor market back on track. It might make for good Labor Day weekend reading.
