Eric Schmidt -- Chairman and CEO of Google, Chairman of the Board of Directors of the New America Foundation, and a member of President-Elect Barack Obama's Transition Economic Advisory Board -- will be in Washington Tuesday, Nov. 18, to discuss the intersection between technology and the economy.

Schmidt will explore the ways in which technology can help the new administration and Congress address two of the biggest challenges ahead: generating the kind of short- and long-term economic and job growth that can help pull the nation out of financial distress, and restoring public trust in government. He will offer specifics on such topics as the need to build a 21st Century infrastructure, support for research and innovation, repairs for our education system, and ways to make the government more open and responsive.

Schmidt's remarks will be followed by a Q&A session. Space is limited for this event; please RSVP if you plan to attend. This event will also be webcast live.
