Jan 25, 2013
Rayburn House Office Building B-369

Event Speakers

Bruce Yandle

Distinguished Adjunct Fellow

What the heck is going on with the United States economy?

With all of the uncertainty it is difficult to make sense of what the numbers truly mean.

For an economic update, please join the Mercatus Center for a new Capitol Hill Campus program featuring Dr. Bruce Yandle, Dean Emeritus at Clemson College of Business and Behavioral Sciences. The presentation will include:

A discussion of labor markets

• Manufacturing

• And the two bright spots in the economy, energy and housing.

A second component of the presentation will focus on trends in regulation:

• Why there is so much command-and-control,

• And theories that offer insight into how government regulates.

The emphasis of this discussion will be the Bootlegger/Baptist theory pioneered by Professor Yandle. We hope you will join us for what promises to be a most insightful session.

Space is limited. Please RSVP today to reserve a seat. The event is free and open to all congressional and federal agency staff. This event is not open to the general public. Food will be provided. Due to space constraints, please no interns. Questions? Please contact Erin Connolly, Events Associate, at econnol4@gmu.edu or (703)993-9913.
