Hayek Auditorium
Featuring William Niskanen, Chairman Emeritus
and Distinguished Senior Economist, The Cato Institute

In his new book, William Niskanen illustrates how economic incentives significantly aid in the creation of successful policies and applies his sharply focused economic perspective to such topics as unemployment, election law, and the economics of war and peace. This practical approach toward economic policy generates surprising results and offers suggestions to avoid common pitfalls of government policymaking.
