Please join the American Academy of Political and Social Science for the 2017 Daniel Patrick Moynihan Lecture on Social Science and Public Policy, given by Alan B. Krueger, the 2017 Moynihan Prize winner.
Krueger is the Bendheim Professor of Economics and Public Policy at Princeton University’s Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs and director of Princeton’s Survey Research Center. He served as chairman of President Barack Obama’s Council of Economic Advisers and as a member of his cabinet from November 2011 to August 2013. His lecture will focus on the economics of alternative work arrangements (also known as the “gig economy”) and what politicians and policymakers can do to support this growing segment of the American workforce. Senator Mark Warner, D-Virginia, will introduce Professor Krueger.
His recently released working paper, “Where Have All the Workers Gone?” examines the movements and trends of labor force participation in the United States, which reached a near 40-year low of 62.4 percent in September 2015.
The lecture runs from 4-5:30 p.m. in the Kennedy Caucus Room, 325 Russell Senate Office Building on Capitol Hill.
While free, attendees are asked to register. Please RSVP TO THE LECTURE HERE.
