DLS - 3/12/19 Daypass - Macroeconomic Prospects for the US and the Globe
Dr. Kathryn M. E. Dominguez After an unusually slow recovery from the global recession in 2008, macroeconomic conditions in the U.S. have improved markedly over the past few years. Economic growth has also improved in other countries, though the pace of that expansion has become increasingly uneven, and prospects for future growth have become increasingly uncertain. The lecture will consider how escalating trade tensions and policy shifts in the U.S. are likely to impact U.S. and global growth going forward. Kathryn Dominguez is Professor of Economics and Public Policy at the University of Michigan and Research Associate at the National Bureau of Economic Research. She teaches in the Ford school and the department of economics, where she also serves as the Director of the Honors Program. She received her Ph.D. in economics from Yale University, and taught at Harvard before joining the Michigan faculty in 1997. She currently serves on the panel of economic advisors at the Congressional Budget Office, and has previously served on advisory panels at the Federal Reserve Banks of Chicago and Cleveland, and as a research advisor for the Bank for International Settlements.
