Event description
Please join American Experiment and economist John Phelan for a conversation on how state policy can determine who comes out ahead

About this Event

Can we look at the states as “laboratories of democracy,” as Louis Brandeis famously called them, in order to pursue better policy? In his research, John does this by comparing the economic performances of neighboring counties on either side of the Minnesota border. At this event, John will share his findings on Minnesota and Iowa, and discuss the insight it gives us into the economic impacts of state policies.

Lunch will be served and doors will open at 11:30. Presentation will begin at noon.

Your ticket includes lunch, a FREE American Experiment wine glass, a copy of John's just-released report, and a subscription to our Thinking Minnesota magazine.

John Phelan is an economist at Center of the American Experiment. He is a graduate of Birkbeck College, University of London, where he earned a BSc in Economics, and of the London School of Economics where he earned an MSc. John worked in finance for ten years before becoming a professional economist. He worked at Capital Economics in London, where he wrote reports ranging from the impact of Brexit on the British economy to the effect of government regulation on cell phone coverage. John has written for City A.M. in London and for The Wall Street Journal in both Europe and the U.S. He has also been published in the journal Economic Affairs.
