Event Speakers

Donald J. Boudreaux

Senior Fellow, F. A. Hayek Program for Advanced Study in Philosophy, Politics, and Economics

Please join Mercatus Center senior education advisor Donald J. Boudreaux for lunch and a discussion on the dangers of cronyism.

Recent headlines have demonstrated the expanse of cronyism, from Solyndra to pension-spiking by workers on the Long Island Railroad. Don will explain why cronyism takes place using the lens of public choice economics, a form of economic analysis made famous by Nobel-prize winning economist, George Mason’s own James Buchanan. Don will demonstrate the pervasiveness of cronyism and recommend some ways it can be combated.
