The Office of Alumni Relations & Development and Hiram College’s James A. Garfield Center for Public Leadership (GCPL) invite you to a seminar hosted at The Washington Center in Washington D.C.
Join us for an evening of intellectual stimulation followed by heavy appetizers and mingling with current students and Professor James Thompson. The seminar will feature discussion and debate about the policy implications of the Green New Deal. This "new" New Deal has not only taken center stage in current discussions of U.S. domestic policy, but it has also become the centerpiece of internal debates within the Democratic Party about how far "left" the party should lean, in terms of its general policy orientation. To address this topic, the seminar will feature guest speakers including:
Ryan Bourne Ryan occupies the R. Evan Scharf Chair for the Public Understanding of Economics at Cato. He has written on a number of economic issues, including: fiscal policy, inequality, minimum wages and rent control. Before joining Cato, Bourne was Head of Public Policy at the Institute of Economic Affairs and Head of Economic Research at the Centre for Policy Studies (both in the UK).
Jeffery Robb '22 Jeffery, a current sophomore at Hiram College will discuss useful general background information about the origins and the significance of the Green New Deal.
Brett Bentkowksi '21 Brett, a current Junior at Hiram College will talk about the environmental arguments in favor of the Green New Deal.
Dion Thornton '21 Dion, a current Junior at Hiram College will talk about the economic arguments in favor of the Green New Deal.
This event is part of GCPL's regular seminar series, in which guest speakers are brought before a Hiram audience each semester in order to address pressing issues of public policy. For this fall semester, the GCPL is very pleased to partner with The Washington Center, which is based in D.C.
Cost of this event is $15 per person and includes heavy appetizers following the seminar. RSVP by calling 800-705-5050 or by clicking the register button above.
