Here’s the thing about bigwigs who come to Washington to do important things — you don’t actually have to know who they are to know how important they sound.

On April 25, The Atlantic and National Journal are hosting their first annual “Summit on the State of the Middle Class.” Along with a keynote interview with National Economic Council Director Gene Sperling by National Journal’s Ron Brownstein, the line-up of speakers is as follows:  Noel Anderson National Director of Program YearUp, Carol Thompson Cole, President and CEO Venture Philanthropy Partners, Paula Dwyer, Editor, Bloomberg View, David Madland, Director of the American Worker Project Center for American Progress, Mark Perry a Scholar from American Enterprise Institute and Tom Touchet, CEO of 24×7.
