Alan Blinder on Economics and Politics

September 17 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Event Navigation

Presented by the Gabelli Center, the Fixed Income Analyst Society, and the New York Alternative Hedgefund Roundtable:

Alan Blinder, PhD, leading economist and political expert, will discuss the clash of economics and politics through the words of his new book, Advice and Dissent: Why America Suffers When Economics and Politics Collide.

American economic policy and politicians historically have had complications connecting on their viewpoints. The cultural divide separates these two forums, which the country expects to be unified and run efficiently. To a fault, politicians are concerned with winning elections and keeping their counterparts satisfied while economists provide their calculated standpoint, leaving our nation in a world full of disconnect. Blinder will discuss ways to bridge the gap between these two parties to encourage unity amongst the leaders of our nation.

Students interested in attending should email amorales42@fordham.edu with your email, school, and expected year of graduation. There is no cost for students to attend this event. Seating is limited.

The first 100 attendees will receive a copy of Blinder’s book Advice and Dissent: Why America Suffers When Economics and Politics Collide.
