Paul Krugman
,  Columnist, The New York Times; Professor of Economics and International Affairs, Princeton University; Author, End This Depression Now!

Nobel Laureate economist Krugman believes that the U.S. and world economies are not getting better. He says we are still in the midst of a depression rather than a recession, and that “nations, rich in resources, talent, and knowledge, all the ingredients for prosperity and a decent standard of living for all, remain in a state of intense pain.”  Yet he also believes that a quick, strong recovery is but one step away.  Come hear his thoughts on what political leaders can and must do.
