What Happened to the American Dream?




What Happened to the American Dream?

Moderator Christine Romans, NBC Senior Business Correspondent and former CNN morning anchor, will lead a lively discussion with two eminent and plain-speaking economists, Nobel Prize winner Professor Angus Deaton and national retirement expert Professor Teresa Ghilarducci about the impact on you and America's future of economic and policy decisions. In fact, economic issues are central in the upcoming presidential election, especially the future of Social Security and retirement.

Deaton, winner of the 2015 Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences, will discuss his recent book Economics in America, about what’s gone wrong with economics and how it can better address real-world problems. Ghilarducci, frequently heard on National Public Radio and often asked to testify in Congress, will discuss her new book, Work, Retire, Repeat, about the uncertain future of retirement, the failure of our current system and how we can fix it.

Venue: Montclair State University, University Hall, Room #1010. 

April 27, 2024 at 3:00pm - 4pm
