Inequality Speaker Series


Date: Tuesday, January 15, 2019 - Tuesday, April 23, 2019

Time: Varies

Location: Varies


For the 2019-20 year, the T’19 MBA Fellows in the Center for Business, Government & Society are exploring the theme of rising inequality in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis. Through discussions among fellows and with faculty, students have been reflecting on how the crisis impacted governments, businesses and society globally—and developing hypotheses on how to drive a more sustainable economy ten years later. Throughout the year, the fellows host distinguished speakers on this topic ranging from professors and policymakers to journalists and executives. The Inequality Speaker Series includes the following speakers:

January 15: Dean Matthew Slaughter
February 21: Professor Emily Blanchard and Montgomery Fellow Jake Sullivan
February 27: Professor Emily Blanchard
April 2: Professor David Blanchflower
April 16: Jason Furman
April 22: Amy Goldstein (The Washington Post)
April 23: Peter Raskind D’78, T’79

Tuck students, faculty, and staff can sign up on Tuck Connect. Others can register for this event by emailing the Center for Business, Government & Society at least two weeks in advance.
