Read the remarks by top Obama economic adviser Jason Furman at the 2017 Harberger lecturer

"I want to use this lecture as an opportunity to explain how I came to economic policy as a profession, why I find it so exciting, and how to use economics to address questions we know the answer to—and more commonly, how we use economics to address questions we do not already know the answer to, and how to think about policies that affect growth and inequality. In all of these cases I will draw heavily on issues that I worked on in the Obama Administration." - From Jason Furman, Harberger Lecture, April 27, 2017
