Announcing a new Meetup for Inquisitive Minds!
What: Econ One Oh One: Economic Policy & The American Dream
When: Thursday, September 8,[masked]:00 PM
Where: First Parish Church
1446 Massachusetts Ave.
Cambridge, MA 02138
Did the massive stimulus spending packaged by Congress create any jobs?
How much influence does the state have on the economic tides? How much does state and federal tax & budget policy impact economic growth?
Will raising taxes create more jobs during a recession? Are political viewpoints like liberal and conservative constructive points to start from for sound economic policy? Are those right-wingers just nuts?
"James K. Galbraith examines current economic debates about austerity, government spending, tax policy, and job creation. How much of the current debate in Washington and in statehouses across the country is driven by economic theory and how much by political ideology? What impact do these abstract concepts have on individual well-being? On the well-being of society as a whole?"
Note: It won't be a proper IM event without some discussion and a few adult beverages. So closer to this event we'll setup a place to grab dinner before or after the lecture.
When: Thursday September 8,[masked]:00 PM
