Murray Weidenbaum Tribute Forum
Renowned economists gathered on May 20, 2013 to pay tribute to the Weidenbaum Center’s founder and honorary chairman, Murray Weidenbaum, in a forum tailor-made to highlight his life-long accomplishments.
The afternoon was devoted to a public forum that kicked off with a panel on “Current Challenges in Regulation.” The second session focused on today’s challenges in macroeconomic policy. After both sessions, speakers and discussants took questions from the audience.
