Blackstone Group’s Steve Schwarzman said he skipped his morning workout today to participate in a discussion on the economy at Lincoln Center. But a workout is what the U.S. needs, he suggested. “We’re like a first-class athlete who stopped training and stopped playing and ate a lot,” Schwarzman said. “They don’t put you back in the game when you look like that.”
