Experts to share insights on the economy and the election

In the second of two panel discussions at Yale on the economy and the election, leading experts moderated by President Richard C. Levin will explore relevant issues of macroeconomics and financial stability.

The public panel will be held Nov. 1 at 7:30 p.m. in Levinson Auditorium of Yale Law School, 127 Wall St. The discussion will be broadcast live online on Yale’s YouTube channel.

“No issues are more fundamental to this election than economic recovery and the effects of government policy on our prosperity and growth,” Levin said.

The panel will focus on the macroeconomy, specifically fiscal austerity versus stimulus, monetary policy, the financial crisis and how to ensure future financial stability, and unemployment and growth.

Levin, who is also the Frederick William Beinecke Professor of Economics, will be joined on the panel by:

John Geanakoplos, the James Tobin Professor of Economics at Yale, a leader in the study of financial crises and leverage cycles.

William Nordhaus, Sterling Professor of Economics at Yale, president-elect of the American Economic Association, and one of the nation’s most influential macroeconomists.

Robert Shiller, the Arthur M Okun Professor of Economics at Yale, a world-renowned behavioral macroeconomist.

Aleh Tsivinski, professor of economics at Yale, an authority at the intersection of macroeconomics and public economics.

Michael Woodford, the John Bates Clark Professor of Political Economy at Columbia University, one of the world’s leading monetary economists.

Following the discussion the panel will answer questions from the audience.
