INTERVIEW ON THE PRICE OF BUSINESS SHOW, MEDIA PARTNER OF THIS SITE.

Recently Kevin Price, Host of the nationally syndicated Price of Business Show, interviewed Casey Mulligan, Former Chief Economist of the White House Council of Economic Advisers (2018-19).

Price and Mulligan discuss the incredible moves by both Democrats and Republicans towards policies that have a history of failure. These include price controls and the weaponization of trade through quotas and tariffs.  Both parties had abandoned these types of policies as failed experiences for decades.  Now, both parties are pursuing them in various ways.

According to the NY Times, “Mulligan is affiliated with a number of professional organizations, including the National Bureau of Economic Research, the George J. Stigler Center for the Study of the Economy and the State, and the Population Research Center. He is also the recipient of numerous awards and fellowships, including those from the National Science Foundation, the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, the Smith- Richardson Foundation, and the John M. Olin Foundation.

 

“Professor Mulligan received his Ph.D. in economics from the University of Chicago in 1993. He has also served as a visiting professor teaching public economics at Harvard University, Clemson University, and Irving B. Harris Graduate School of Public Policy Studies at the University of Chicago.”
