Econ Speaker Series Welcomes Podcast Host


As part of the Economics Speaker Series, James R. Harrigan will speak at 7 p.m. Nov. 30 in Violette Hall 1236 on his experiences as dean of the American University of Iraq-Sulaimani.

Harrigan is senior editor at the American Institute for Economic Research (AIER) and co-host of the “Words and Numbers” podcast. He was previously dean of the American University of Iraq-Sulaimani, and later served as director of academic programs at the Institute for Humane Studies and Strata Policy, where he was also a senior research fellow. When Harrigan went to Iraq to be the dean at the American University of Iraq-Sulaimani, he landed in a culture he did not know, with people he had never met, only to be thrust into the middle of the Arab Spring, which was for him and his Kurdish neighbors the Kurdish Spring. This event is open to the public and all are invited to come.

On the day of his visit, Harrigan will stop by Economic Analysis of Social and Policy Issues course (ECON 345) at 4:30 p.m. to discuss the topic of public choice theory.
