Milken Institute Virtual Summer Series: Restarting the Economic Engine

Industry Insight


The current crisis has severely hampered entrepreneurs and small to medium-sized companies – the backbone of the U.S economy. While government programs have provided a lifeline in some cases, many companies are still looking at months with little to no revenue and mounting expenses.

PGIM CEO, David Hunt, joins Milken Institute’s Virtual Summer Series to discuss the economic implications of the coronavirus crisis and “restarting the economic engine.” During the panel discussion, Hunt provides his perspective on how banks and investors can support companies facing illiquidity while incentivizing new businesses essential for economic growth, rebuilding trust in public and private institutions, and reaffirming our commitment to economic opportunity, inclusivity and justice as facets of the American Dream.
