The Royal Netherlands Embassy
The National Economists Club (NEC)
cordially invite you hear the distinguished economist
Dr. John B. Taylor
deliver the first annual
NEC Ambassador’s Invitational Address
"Why Has the Recovery Been So Slow and Is Economic Policy To Blame?"
The U.S. economy has recovered at a much slower pace than during earlier recoveries from deep recessions and financial crises. This talk will first establish this fact, which itself is controversial, and then consider various explanations that are at the center of current controversy from economic policy with too much austerity on one side to economic policy with too little fiscal and monetary discipline on the other.
The Address will be given each year at a different embassy.
The event: Dr. Taylor's address will be followed by a reception.
The speaker: John Taylor is the Mary and Robert Raymond Professor of Economics at Stanford University, and the George P. Shultz Senior Fellow in Economics at Stanford University's Hoover Institution. He has been Under Secretary of the Treasury for International Affairs, a member of the President's Council of Economic Advisors, and Senior Economist at the Council of Economic Advisers. He has also taught at Columbia and Princeton Universities. Dr. Taylor is perhaps best-known for his eponymous Taylor Rule and the related Taylor Curve and Taylor Principle.
