Professor Mulligan takes the position that major subsidies and regulations intended to help the poor and unemployed were changed in more than a dozen ways after 2007 and ultimately reduced incentives for people to work and businesses to hire. In this webinar, he will reveal how borrowers can expect their earnings to affect the amount that lenders will forgive in debt renegotiation; his position that redistribution in the forms of subsidies, taxes and minimum-wage laws profoundly altered the path of the economy; and finally, Professor Mulligan will take us through his vision of the economy for the future.
Professor Mulligan received his Ph.D. in economics from the University of Chicago in 1993 and in addition to teaching at the University of Chicago, has also served as a visiting professor teaching public economics at Harvard University and Clemson University. His research covers capital and labor taxation, the gender wage gap, Social Security, voting and the economics of aging. He recently published the book, "The Redistribution Recession," where he goes into further detail on the recent recession and is also the author of "Parental Priorities and Economic Inequality." Professor Mulligan also writes blog entries for the NY Times and blogsupplyanddemand.com.
