'The U.S. Economy: New Policy, New Growth?'
The College of Arts and Sciences' economics department welcomes Edward Lazear, professor of economics at Stanford University and senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, for the first Joe Tiao Lecture of the semester at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 29, in Regnier Forum.
The title of Lazear's talk is "The US Economy: New Policy, New Growth?" All faculty, students and members of the Manhattan community are welcome to attend this event.
Lazear, the Morris A. Cox senior fellow at the Hoover Institution since 1985, also is the Davies family professor of economics at Stanford University's Graduate School of Business, where he has taught since 1992. Lazear taught previously at the University of Chicago's Graduate School of Business, where he was the Brown professor of urban and labor economics. He served as chairman of the U.S. President's Council of Economic Advisers and was at the White House from 2006 to 2009. In his position as the chief economic advisor to the president, he advised on a broad range of matters that involve both the macroeconomy and microeconomic issues.
Lazear also is the founder of the Society of Labor Economists and is the founding editor of the Journal of Labor Economics. He has won many awards, including the 2004 Institute for the Study of Labor's Prize in Labor Economics and the 2006 Jacob Mincer Prize.
The Joe Tiao Lecture Series, initiated in 2006, enables the College of Arts and Sciences' economics department to bring two internationally acclaimed economists to campus each year. Each Tiao Lecturer presents two lectures at K-State: a public lecture on an economics issue of current interest and a more technical seminar in the department.
