Description

THIS EVENT WILL BE LIVE-STREAMED

The stock market surged soon after since President Trump’s election, but much remains uncertain about his economic plan. Will his proposed combination of tax cuts, spending cuts, and infrastructure investment produce long-term growth or a new recession? Kathleen Hays, global economics and policy editor at Bloomberg, moderates a panel of experts from across the political spectrum to break down the unknowns and the realities of “Trumponomics.”

PANELISTS:

Paul Krugman, Nobel Prize-winning economist, New York Times columnist, and distinguished professor at the Graduate Center.

Jason Furman, senior fellow at Peterson Institute of International Economics and former chairman of President Obama’s Council of Economic Advisers.

Dan Alpert, managing partner of Westwood Capital, fellow at the Century Foundation, and author of The Age of Oversupply.

James Pethokoukis, CNBC contributor, columnist and blogger at the American Enterprise Institute, and former Washington columnist for Reuters.
 
Part of the series “The First 100 Days.” Presented with the Stone Center on Socio-Economic Inequality and the Advanced Research Collaborative (ARC).
