Speaker to Discuss Income Inequality

The Department of Economics will host Jennifer McDonald to speak on income inequality and occupational licensing at 7 p.m. Oct. 16 in Violette Hall 1010. Audience members will learn how firms and associations use the power of government to create barriers to entry, limit competition and block ordinary citizens from earning an honest living. McDonald is a research analyst at the Institute for Justice where she conducts original social science research as part of the strategic research team. Her work includes the recently published second edition of “License to Work: A National Study of Burdens from Occupational Licensing.”
