Rayburn House Office Building B-340

Event Speakers

Veronique de Rugy

George Gibbs Chair in Political Economy

As the deadline for reauthorization of the Export-Import Bank of the United States draws near, Congress is faced with a choice of whether to keep the Bank or allow its charter to expire. Policymakers are carefully reconsidering the assumptions, mission, and activities of the federal government’s official export credit corporation in order to make an informed, fact-based decision.

The Mercatus Center at George Mason University invites you to join Dr. Veronique de Rugy, senior research fellow for the Mercatus Center, for an examination of the justifications supporting continued authorization of the Bank and the economic realities of those claims.

Space is limited. Please register online for this event.

This event is free and open to all congressional and federal agency staff. This event is not open to the general public. Lunch will be provided. Due to space constraints, please no interns. Questions? Please contact Caitlyn Van Orden at cvanorden@mercatus.gmu.edu.
