Join us on Thursday, October 27, 2022, for a book talk: A Monetary and Fiscal History of the United States, 1961–2021, by Alan Blinder. This lively book traces 60 years of macroeconomic policy in the United States, from John F. Kennedy to Joe Biden, from William McChesney Martin to Jerome Powell. At times, the two branches of policy cooperated, and at other times they clashed. Putting it all together makes a fascinating story of progress interrupted by regress—one that has not been told before.
|Alan Blinder, Gordon S. Rentschler Memorial Professor of Economics and Public Affairs at Princeton University, former vice chair of the Federal Reserve Board, former member of the Council of Economic Advisers, and bestselling New York Times author will be giving a talk on his latest book, A Monetary and Fiscal History of the United States, 1961–2021. This fascinating story of U.S. economic policy from Kennedy to COVID is sure to become a classic.|
