Gerry's Talk: "Are Old School Economic Measurements Out of Date?"

The Thomas R. Brown Foundation proudly presents an annual and favorite event for teachers, especially those teaching economics, AP Economics, U.S. government or social studies, who want to gain valuable insight about the current U.S. economy. On Saturday, October 28, 2017, you will have the opportunity to hear the latest data and assessment of the economy from our favorite economist. University of Arizona professor emeritus Dr. Gerry Swanson will join us for a delicious breakfast at a lovely Tucson hotel, where he will provide teachers with his perspective on the current state of the economy, using his usual humor, insight and keen knowledge of principles economics. Gerry will discuss traditional economic measurements, and why they may not work the way we were taught 20 or 30 years ago. Following his presentation, Dr. Swanson will allow time for questions from teachers.
