Myron Scholes Forum, November 13, 2012
Nicholas Bloom, professor of economics, Stanford University.
The 20th century was the American Century, but what does the 21st century hold for the U.S. economy? Professor Bloom evaluated what the US has been through in the Great Recession, the current state of economy, and the long-run prospects for growth, given the crisis in education and inequality. He also provided an overview of the broad sweep of current economic thinking, his own economics research on American management, and his experiences as an immigrant from the previous global superpower (Great Britain) living in the US.
