Event Speakers

Dino Falaschetti

Senior Research Fellow

Despite stronger growth in recent quarters, the U.S. economy continues to fall far short of its growth potential. What are the benefits to low and middle income households if we close the current growth gap and how can we get the economy to generate those benefits?

The Mercatus Center at George Mason University invites you to join Dr. Dino Falaschetti for a discussion on economic growth and the regulatory barriers limiting that growth. Dr. Falaschetti is a Senior Research Fellow and Director of Outreach for Financial and Economic Policy at Mercatus and a former White House economic advisor.

Dr. Falaschetti will discuss:

  • Why our “new normal” economic recovery signifies economic stagnation, not growth;
  • Current regulatory policies and practices that are limiting economic growth; and
  • How policy can change to generate stronger economic benefits for more people.
