Event at ASU...
"Recovering the American Economy"
The recent economic downturn, dubbed the Great Recession and considered by some to be the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression, affected the entire world economy. During this crisis, we have witnessed growing distrust of government and established political leaders across Europe and the United States. Have policymakers and politicians prolonged this crisis? What is the future of Western economies in the coming decades?
Two leading economics experts, Adrian Wooldridge, managing editor at The Economist and co-author of "The Fourth Revolution: The Global Race to Reinvent the State," and Brian Domitrovic, author of "Econoclasts," explore these questions in a public forum sponsored by the newly established ASU Center for Political Thought and Leadership at ASU.
Parking for the event is available in the Apache Boulevard Parking Structure at Lemon St. and Normal Ave. off of Apache Blvd.
Adrian Wooldridge is The Economist's managing editor and writes the Schumpeter column. He was previously based in Washington, DC, as the Washington bureau chief where he also wrote the Lexington column. Previously the Washington bureau chief of The Economist, he is the author of "Masters of Management: How the Business Gurus and their Ideas have Changed the World—for Better and for Worse" (2011); "The Company: A Short History of a Revolutionary Idea" (2005); "A Future Perfect: The Challenge and Hidden Promise of Globalisation" (2008); "The Right Nation" (2005); and other books.
Brian Domitrovic holds a PhD in history from Harvard University, where he also did graduate work in the economics department. He earned his bachelor's degree at Columbia University, studying history and mathematics. An associate professor and chairman of the Department of History at Sam Houston State University, he has written for numerous scholarly and popular publications. He writes a weekly column at Forbes.com under the byline Past & Present. His blog is Supply-Side Economics Today. Domitrovic lives in Texas with his wife and children.
