Harvard University economist Robert Barro is rare among academic economists in that he can communicate with noneconomists in a simple, lucid, and logical manner. In his latest collection of essays, he applies economic principles to a wide range of social, macroeconomic, and international financial issues. Barro shows that policies that rely on individual liberty and free markets yield superior outcomes to those that do not. Please join us for a lively discussion with one of America’s top economists.
