Next American Economy Breakfast Series
A discussion with Alan S. Blinder on the issue of “the great contraction.”
Do we face a much longer period of very slow growth than after most recessions? Why? And how long?
Alan S. Blinder is Gordon S. Rentschler Memorial Professor of Economics at Princeton University and has been on the faculty since 1971, taking time off from January 1993 through January 1996 for service in the U.S. government—first as a member of President Clinton’s original Council of Economic Advisers, and then as Vice Chairman of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System.
