Event Speakers

Bruce Yandle

Distinguished Adjunct Fellow

In the first half of 2016, the US economy skirted close to recession territory but so far has registered positive growth. What are the major forces that seem to be driving the slow-growth economy? Is the economy getting stronger? Or, will we hit recession territory before the end of the year? 

 Please join the Mercatus Center at George Mason University for a Capitol Hill Campus presentation by Dr. Bruce Yandle, Distinguished Adjunct Professor of Economics, on “Evaluating A Sluggish US Economy.”

 The event will answer these questions and discuss:

  • Deep differences of economic effects have between states and regions;
  • Income growth, employment, fiscal balance, poverty, entrepreneurship, and urban versus rural recovery differences; and 
  • Why many Americans seem to be deeply frustrated by the policy prospects and issues they face in this 2016 election year.

This event is free and open to the general public. This event has been planned in accordance with the widely-attended event exception to congressional gift rules and government ethics memoranda. Lunch will be provided.
