Denison Consumption Series hosts Stephen Marglin
Posted: January 29, 2010
Denison’s yearlong, campus-wide “consumption” theme lecture series hosts Stephen Marglin at 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 9, in Higley Hall Auditorium (100 Ridge Road). Marglin’s lecture, titled “Why is Enough Never Enough?” will examine economics and consumer culture in the United States, and why thinking like an economist fuels the financial crisis. The lecture is free and open to the public.
Marglin is the Walter S. Barker Chair in the Department of Economics at Harvard University and author of “The Dismal Science: How Thinking Like an Economist Undermines Communities.” He has contributed to many aspects of economics with published papers and books that consider the foundations of cost, benefit analysis, the workings of the labor-surplus economy, the organization of production, the relationship between the growth of income and its distribution, and the process of macroeconomic adjustment. His work has been translated into many languages, including Spanish, French, German and Japanese.
