The Global Economy: Higher Mean, Higher Variance?

May 1, 2017

5:30pm 7:00pm

Harper Center Room 104

Nearly ten years after the worst postwar global financial crisis got underway, the global economy seems to be gathering strength. But at the same time, it faces an unusually high degree of policy uncertainty, including risks of events that could badly derail growth. What challenges have arisen? And are we prepared to meet them? In this latest talk in our Cocktails and Conversation series, Maurice Obstfeld, chief economist of the International Monetary Fund, will offer his insights and discuss these issues with Lars Peter Hansen, 2013 Nobel Laureate in Economics and director of the Becker Friedman Institute.


Reception:  5:30 p.m.
Talk: 6:00-7:00 p.m.
