This Thursday, George Mason University economist (and local food blogger) Tyler Cowen will host leading expert in globalization Dani Rodrik for a dialogue as part of the Conversations with Tyler series.
The Mercatus Center’s Conversations with Tyler series has brought world-class thought leaders like Peter Thiel, Jeffrey Sachs, and Luigi Zingales to the Arlington campus of George Mason University to discuss how ideas, cutting-edge research, and applied economics can bring solutions to society’s most pressing problems. More than 100,000 people have viewed the first events in the series.
Harvard University professor Dani Rodrik is one of the leading voices on globalization, economic growth, development, and political economy. His 1997 book Has Globalization Gone Too Far? was called “one of the most important economics books of the decade” in Business Week.
Audience members are invited to ask questions during the Q&A and stick around after the event for a book signing. The first 20 people in the door with George Mason University IDs will receive a complimentary copy of Rodrik’s highly anticipated, forthcoming book Economics Rules: The Rights and Wrongs of the Dismal Science.
