A Very Big 15-Year Anniversary

We just reached a big anniversary:  “Economic Policy Working Group Reaches 15-Year Milestone in Providing Rigorous Policy Analysis and Solutions for American Prosperity,” as the Hoover Daily Report headlined in a just-published article. Here is the article https://www.hoover.org/news/economic-policy-working-group-reaches-15-year-milestone. It provides a beautiful summary of the people, seminars, working papers, and, of course, the books. And the “Rigorous Policy Analysis” and the “Solutions for American Prosperity” are key, and we have always emphasized the international benefits to the world. Here is the list of books, starting with the latest:

The Working Group’s meetings are now on a virtual platform. As the article states: “the level of participation from policy makers and scholars across the nation and the world has grown substantially.” And we will have another big conference on May 12, 2023. It is so important to keep up the work.
