Feb. 24, George F. Kennan Distinguished Lecture

Internationally-renowned scholar James Galbraith will discuss austerity – the current go-to economic policy prescription for governments across the globe. Why are public institutions in crisis when many economies, including our own, are actually bigger than ever? Galbraith will be joined by Greek economist and co-author, Yanis Varoufakis.

Cosponsored by UWM’s Department of Economics and the Center for Research on International Economics, Center for Economic Development, Department of History, Department of Political Science, and Department of Sociology.
