Noted economist to speak at NDSU

Fargo, N.D., Feb. 9 — NDSU’s Capitalism and Society Lecture Series is hosting a presentation by economist Stephen Moore, scheduled for Tuesday, Feb. 20, at 4 p.m. in the Barry Hall AgCountry Auditorium.

Moore’s presentation, “How Free Enterprise Can Restore American Prosperity,” is free and open to the public. After the lecture, there will be a short session for questions and answers, followed by pizza and refreshments in the Barry Hall Atrium.

Moore is a Distinguished Visiting Fellow, Project for Economic Growth, at The Heritage Foundation. He formerly wrote on the economy and public policy for The Wall Street Journal and was a member of The Journal’s editorial board. Moore returned to The Heritage Foundation in January 2014—about 25 years after his tenure as the think tank’s Grover M. Hermann Fellow in Budgetary Affairs from 1984 to 1987. During the 2016 presidential election, Moore served as senior economic adviser to Donald Trump and drafted early versions of the Trump tax plan. 

The Capitalism and Society Lecture Series is hosted by the NDSU Center for the Study of Public Choice and Private Enterprise. The purpose of the lecture series is to invite dialogue between researchers, students and community members about institutions and policies that encourage and enhance human well-being.

“We’re excited to host Mr. Moore at NDSU. His experiences in research, journalism and public policy give him a unique, informed perspective for speaking to students and members of our community,” said Jeremy Jackson, director of the Center for the Study of Public Choice and Private Enterprise.
