Stanford Economist to Discuss Restoring Economic Growth at Bradley Series

Share |

Stanford University economist John B. Taylor will discuss “First Principles Versus Secular Stagnation” at the Bradley Distinguished Lecture Series on Thursday, May 8, 2014.  The luncheon event takes place from 12 noon-1:30 p.m. at the University Club, 924 East Wells Street.  The Bradley Series is sponsored by the Sheldon B. Lubar School of Business at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and the Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation.

Taylor will describe how the slow pace of the U.S. economic recovery and the depth of the great recession before it were due to a significant shift in previously successful economic policies.  He will discuss how the nation can restore strong, sustainable growth and begin to reverse the effects of the increasingly discretionary and interventionist monetary, regulatory, and fiscal policies of recent history.

John B. Taylor is the Mary and Robert Raymond Professor of Economics at Stanford University, as well as the George P. Shultz Senior Fellow in Economics at the Hoover Institution.  He is widely known for his research on the foundations of modern monetary theory and policy, which has been applied by central banks and financial market analysts around the world.

The registration fee for the event is $40.  For more information or to register, contact Debbie Roy at the Lubar School of Business, 414/229-3824 or royd@uwm.edu.
