Great Expectations or Hard Times? Can America Restore Its Economic Leadership?

The 20th century was the American Century, but what does the 21st century hold for the U.S. economy? Professor Bloom evaluated what the US has been through in the Great Recession, the current state of economy, and the long-run prospects for growth, given the crisis in education and inequality. He also provided an overview of the broad sweep of current economic thinking, his own economics research on American management, and his experiences as an immigrant from the previous global superpower (Great Britain) living in the US.

This event is part of the Initiative on Global Markets (IGM) and is generously sponsored by Myron Scholes.

The IGM also receives financial support from our corporate partner, AQR Capital Management.
