"Economic Growth: Crucial but Uncertain"
Our speaker is adept at spelling out economic influences in clear, straightforward, and logical terms. His observations and views make eminent sense, yet are not readily accepted by our government leaders. Economic growth is vital, yet the outlook is in question. This presentation will deal with its causes, barriers, and other factors that underpin it. The implications of slower growth will be discussed along with some elements that could boost it if they were undertaken, such as higher legal immigration. Government subsidies, tax policy, and various other aspects also play important roles and will be addressed. This talk should be intriguing, insightful and engaging based on my discussions with David Henderson in preparation for the luncheon meeting.
David Henderson obtained his Ph.D.in economics from UCLA. He is an Emeritus Professor of Economics at the NPS, a Research Fellow with the Hoover Institute, and Senior Fellow with Canada’s Fraser Institute. He was previously a senior economist with President Reagan’s Council of Economic Advisors. David is the author or editor of five books on economics, including Making Great Decisions in Business and Life, and has written hundreds of articles for publications such as the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, Barron’s, and Fortune. He has testified before several House and Senate committees such as the House Ways and Means Committee, and has appeared widely on television, including the Jim Lehrer Newshour and the O’Reilly Factor. Henderson also posts blogs 20 or 25 times a month on topics such as inflation, energy, taxation, immigration and international trade.
