The Economy and the 2018 Elections -- Does It Matter Who Wins?

Join us this evening for an insightful commentary by Paul Krugman, Nobel Prize-winning economist and Op-Ed Columnist for the The NY Times about the current state of economy and how it will affect the 2018 elections.  Dr. Krugman has spent more than 20 years writing extensively for the lay person about economics, economy, and the effect politics has on both.  As Paul says in his book, End This Depression Now!, "Nations rich in resources, talent, and knowledge--all the ingredients for prosperity and a decent standard of living for all--remain in a state of intense pain."   


SpeakerPaul Krugman, American economist; Distinguished Professor of Economics, Graduate Center of the City University of New York; and Columnist, The New York Times


Presented by the Frank G. Zarb School of Business, in collaboration with the Center for Civic Engagement and the Institute for Peace Studies.
