Mark Twain said that, "History does not repeat itself, but it does rhyme." To what degree are the political and economic events that we are living through similar to the past, and to what degree are they different? In short, are things really getting worse, or does it just feel that way? In this talk, Dr. Kuperberg will explore these questions, focusing on the economic, political and legal issues that shape our collective civic experience.
Speaker: Mark Kuperberg, PhD, Professor of Economics, Swarthmore College
