WWS Economic Recovery Series to Feature Economist Alan Blinder, November 14
Alan Blinder '67, the Gordon S. Rentschler Memorial Professor of Economics and Public Affairs at the Woodrow Wilson School at Princeton, will present a public lecture at 4:30 p.m. on Monday November 14, 2011, in Dodds Auditorium, Robertson Hall. A public reception will follow the discussion in Shultz Dining Room. Blinder's talk is one in a series of lectures that focus on economic recovery.
Blinder has been on the Princeton faculty since 1971, taking time off from January 1993 through January 1996 for public service in the U.S. government—first as a member of President Clinton’s original Council of Economic Advisers, and then as vice chairman of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System.
In addition to his academic writings (books, academic articles) and his best-selling introductory textbook, he has written many newspaper and magazine columns and op-eds and, in recent years, has been a regular columnist for The Wall Street Journal. He also appears frequently on television on PBS, CNBC, CNN, Bloomberg, and others.
Blinder is a distinguished fellow and past vice president of the American Economic Association, a past president of the Eastern Economic Association, and a member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, the American Philosophical Society, and the American Academy of Political and Social Science.
