Making Sense of the Unpredictable Economy: Paul Krugman in Conversation with Joseph E. Gagnon, Claudia Sahm, and Karl Smith
While inflation has exploded across the US — creating volatility in gas, food, and housing prices — the Federal Reserve is increasing interest rates to slow the economy. Does that just replace one form of hardship with another for American families? How can we make sense of this unpredictable economy, with its high inflation and low unemployment, and what policies can help keep us out of a recession? Paul Krugman — distinguished professor of economics at the CUNY Graduate Center, Nobel laureate, and New York Times columnist — leads a panel of experts to help us understand these topsy-turvy economic times.

Featuring: Joseph E. Gagnon, senior fellow at the Peterson Institute for International Economics, formerly of the US Federal Reserve Board and the US Treasury Department; Claudia Sahm, leader of the Macroeconomic Research initiative of the Jain Family Institute, formerly of the US Federal Reserve Board and President Obama’s Council of Economic Advisers; and Karl Smith, an opinion columnist at Bloomberg and former vice president for federal policy at the Tax Foundation.

Presented with the Stone Center on Socio-Economic Inequality.

Oct 19, 2022 06:30 PM in Eastern Time (US and Canada)
