Liberal, Libertarian Economists to Debate Merits of Stimulus Package

I thought some of you might find this interesting.

** Start: 10/05/2009 - 4:00pm

** Description:

Was the $787 billion federal stimulus package an enlightened act of
government intervention that averted economic catastrophe or a colossal
waste of taxpayer money that has done more harm than good?

That provocative question will be the subject of the latest installment in
UVM's Janus Forum, a popular debate series now in its second year that
matches prominent thinkers with opposing views on important social issues.

The debate, titled "$787 Billion: Stimulus or Sedative," will take place
Monday, Oct. 5 at 4 p.m. in the Davis Center's Grand Maple Ballroom. The
approximately 60-minute debate, which is free and open to the public, will
be followed by a 30-minute question-and-answer period.

Arguing for the benefits of the stimulus will be Justin Wolfers, associate
professor of business and public policy at the Wharton School at the
University of Pennsylvania and a senior fellow at the Brookings
Institution. Arguing against will be Jeffrey Miron, senior lecturer and
director of undergraduate studies at Harvard University and a senior fellow
at the Cato Institute.
