Event Speakers

Keith Hall

Former Senior Research Fellow

While Washington worries about what the monthly unemployment figures mean for reelection hopes, most Americans just want to know what these numbers mean for our economic outlook. What’s driving these statistics and more importantly, what’s standing in the way of employing the millions of Americans who are currently without a job?

Mercatus Senior Research Fellow Keith Hall explains the economics behind the jobs numbers and how to read between the lines to get a better understanding of what they mean for our economy and different groups of Americans.

Keith brings a keen knowledge of this topic from his former role as Commissioner of the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Please join us for a special lunch and discussion with Keith, where he will give a more thorough analysis of the state of the economy and debunk common misunderstandings about the labor market, including the ability of government programs to create jobs. Dr. Hall will also outline the biggest obstacles to employment and the fundamental improvements that real growth requires.

This is not a fundraising event and there is no charge to join us. We are pleased to have you as our guest to show our thanks and appreciation to our donors. Dress is business casual. Please invite friends or associates who might be interested.
