The 20th century was called the American Century, but what does the 21st century hold for the U.S. economy? Professor Bloom will evaluate what the US has been through in the Great Recession, the current state of economy, and the long-run prospects for growth, given the crisis in Education and increasing inequality. He'll also provide an overview of the broad sweep of current economic thinking, his own economics research and his experiences as a British immigrant working in the US.
Nick Bloom is a professor in economics and a professor, by courtesy, in the Graduate School of Business. Nick is also the Co-Director of the Productivity Program at the National Bureau of Economic Research. His research interests lie in understanding differences in management practices across firms and countries; and the impact of economic uncertainty on the economy. He previously worked (in London) as a tax policy advisor at HM Treasury under Gordon Brown, and as a management consultant at McKinsey & Company.
This Classes Without Quizzes lecture was filmed on location at Stanford Reunion Homecoming 2013 by the Stanford Alumni Association.
