In his talk, Richard Clarida – Lowell Harriss Professor of Economics at Columbia University and a former Assistant Secretary of the United States Treasury – will survey and assess today’s political, financial, and economic landscape from the perspective of our nation’s first Treasury Secretary, Alexander Hamilton.
Although so much has changed in the 250 years since Alexander Hamilton made his mark as one of our most innovative and influential founding fathers, there is a great deal about today’s Washington and Wall Street that he would immediately recognize, much of which he would likely bemoan, but some of which he would surely take great pride in creating. At the conclusion of Professor’s Clarida’s talk there will be ample time for a lively question and answer session.
