Hillary Clinton outlines economic vision
Democratic presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton promised to raise incomes of hardworking Americans and rein in Wall Street excesses in the first major policy address of her 2016 campaign.
The 67-year-old former first lady, senator and secretary of state spent nearly an hour outlining a three-pronged strategy to boost growth, as unemployment continues to languish above five per cent.
The speech, her second in New York City in the past month, comes at a time of surging support for her Democratic challenger on the left, Senator Bernie Sanders, and his populist message against inequality.
