The Howard T. McMyler Memorial Lecture

Reinventing Capitalism: Economic Policy for An Age of Upheaval

The rise of populist candidates in the United States and Europe reflects the important reality that modern capitalism and current economic policies aren’t working for many families. Incomes have been stagnating for much of the population and economic dislocation has become widespread. What are the sources of these problems and what can be done to fix them? Perhaps it is time for a serious rethinking of economic policy to meet the challenges of the twenty-first century. Such new policies can’t (and shouldn’t) recreate the economy of the early postwar decades. Rather they can (and should) make modern economies work for all their citizens.

A small reception will follow the event.

Free parking is available in the Health Sciences Garage.
