Economist to speak

By The Mercury

Edward Wolff, New York University economist, will discuss the decline of the middle class at 7 pm Tuesday in Forum Hall at the K-State Student Union.

Wolff’s appearance at K-State is a part of the Lou Douglas Lecture Series, which is dedicated to Douglas, who was a distinguished professor of political science at Kansas State University from 1949 until 1977. A question-and-answer period will follow the lecture.

Wolff has taught economics at NYU since 1974. He currently serves as a research associate at the National Bureau of Economic Research and is an associate editor or editor of numerous economic research publications.

He has acted as a consultant with the Economic Policy Institute, the World Bank, the United Nations, the WIDER Institute and Mathematica Policy Research.

His research focus is productivity growth, and income and wealth distribution.
