SJSU Insights – The Way Forward: Perspectives on the US Economy

Event Navigation

Join economists Robert Reich and Ben Stein for a powerful and entertaining conversation on the future of the US economy. Moderated by SJSU President Mary Papazian and underwritten by the Valley Foundation, this event is the second in a new university-wide speaker series, Insights, that exposes the San Jose State community to a variety of perspectives in the areas of economics, business, and global affairs.

Robert Reich, the author of 15 books and now a Professor of Public Policy at UC Berkeley, has served under three national administrations, most recently as Secretary of Labor Under Bill Clinton. In 2008, TIME Magazine named him one of the ten most successful cabinet secretaries of the past century.

Ben Stein’s eclectic background includes being a former speechwriter for Presidents Nixon and Ford, an actor and game show host, a columnist for the Wall Street Journal and New York Times, and the author or co-author of more than 30 books.
