The Honorable Julius Genachowski

Chairman, Federal Communications Commission (FCC) | April 20, 2011
Genachowski focused his remarks on the topic of spectrum supply and demand.

At the most recent Economic Club event, Julius Genachowski, Chairman of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), participated in a discussion with Club President David M. Rubenstein at a luncheon meeting.  In a wide-ranging dialogue that covered most of the major telecommunications issues in which the FCC currently is engaged, FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski and Economic Club President David M. Rubenstein focused especially on the topic of spectrum demand and supply.

“Our wireless agenda – our spectrum agenda – is a high priority for us,” Chairman Genachowski told the audience.  “The reason it’s so important is that, around the world, it’s not our little secret that mobile is the future.  And countries around the world understand that there is economic growth, there is job creation, there is innovation in the future of mobile.  Many countries see it as possible to leap-frog technologies if you can go straight to wireless.”
