AFF Jackson’s COVID19 and Federal Fiscal Policies Virtual Happy Hour (Virtual)
August 31, 2020 5:30 PM - 6:30 PM
Several fundamental issues will need to be addressed when the pandemic ends: Will the Fed be able to downsize along with the government? Will fiscal policy continue to dominate monetary policy? Will interest rates continue to be pegged at low levels to finance growing fiscal deficits?
Our guest will be Dr. William Penn, Jr., professor of economics and business at Belhaven University. An advocate of free market economics, Penn has spent his career researching issues related to the historical role of government in economic growth and on the American work ethic as a moral value.
We will discuss the answers to what will determine both the path of economic life and the scope of personal freedom post COVID19.
