What if the economy worked for democracy?

February 13, 2024
6:00 PM - 7:30 PM
The Forum at Columbia University, 601 W. 125th St., New York, NY 10027 Auditorium

Columbia’s Center for Political Economy invites you to a discussion by leading scholars who bring their expertise in law, economics, classics, and political science to bear on this pressing question during a time of great uncertainty. 

Bridging traditional divisions that separate academic disciplines, this vital conversation will explore structural forces undermining shared prosperity, tradeoffs inherent in economic policymaking, and pathways to a more just and inclusive economy, focusing on preserving and promoting political economy for democracy.

Speakers include Columbia University President Minouche Shafik and Professors Ira Katznelson (Columbia), Amy Kapczynski (Yale), Josiah Ober (Stanford), and James Robinson (University of Chicago).

All who are interested in the connection between scholarly innovation, equitable growth, and constitutional government are encouraged to attend.
