The 7 Ways Government Makes Markets: A Talk by Alex Marshall
Thursday, October 24, 2013
Freeman Commons, Humphrey School
Presenter: Alex Marshall
Alex Marshall, a journalist from New York City, will talk about his new book The Surprising Design of Market Economies. In a thesis that has implications for policy wonks, economists and planners of all types, Marshall shows how government creates the essential institutions necessary for economic life, and how the typical debate between those who value the market and those who value government regulation is a false one. Marshall, a Senior Fellow at the Regional Plan Association in New York, is the author of two other books on urban planning, and is a former newspaper reporter. He was also a Loeb Fellow at Harvard University. His work has been published in many places, including The New York Times Magazine, Bloomberg View and The Washington Post.
