National Economists Club Luncheon with Doug Holtz-Eakin, President, American Action Forum:
"Recipe for Recession in 2019?"
Wharton Club Members & Guests invited
- There has been a lot of chatter about a downturn this year. Dr. Holtz-Eakin will examine the genesis of these fears and evaluate the outlook.
- Since 2001, Doug Holtz-Eakin has served in a variety of important policy positions. During 2001-2002, he was the Chief Economist of the President’s Council of Economic Advisers (CEA) (where he had also served during 1989-1990 as a Senior Staff Economist). At CEA he helped to formulate policies addressing the 2000-2001 recession and the aftermath of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.
- From 2003-2005 he was the 6th Director of the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO), which provides budgetary and policy analysis to the U.S. Congress. During his tenure, CBO assisted Congress as they addressed numerous policies — notably the 2003 tax cuts (JGTRRA), the Medicare prescription drug bill (MMA), and Social Security reform.
