2020 Economic Forecast Luncheon

His work has been published in leading academic journals and featured by a number of prominent media outlets, including The Economist, The New York Times, USA Today, and The Wall Street Journal. He holds a Ph.D. in economics from The Ohio State University and a bachelor's degree in economics from the State University of New York at Geneseo.
