The U. S. Economic Outlook: Upside and Risks




Robert Gordon

Stanley G. Harris Professor

Northwestern University


Optimists tell us that in the years ahead, the development of new technological innovations will accelerate.  These technologies will both improve our lives and drive economic growth.  Robert Gordon, author of “The Rise and Fall of American Growth”, argues that there is no evidence to suggest that this is happening.  Are the best, most powerful innovations behind us? Are we witnessing the end of growth?"

Join the OEA for a special presentation by world-renowned economist Robert Gordon. Mr. Gordon will explore these questions and outline upside and downside risks to the US economic outlook.
