Economist Jared Bernstein Comes to Oregon for Two Talks

Oregonians will soon get a chance to hear one of the nation’s leading economists, Jared Bernstein, give his take on income inequality, the state of the middle class and economic growth.

Bernstein will speak in Eugene and Portland on January 28 and 29, respectively. The events are free and open to the public.

Bernstein served as Chief Economist and Economic Adviser to Vice President Joe Biden, executive director of the White House Task Force on the Middle Class and a member of President Barack Obama's economic team from 2009 to 2011.

Currently a senior fellow at the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, Bernstein’s writings appear in The New York Times and Washington Post. He comments on CNBC and MSNBC and he hosts the On the Economy blog.

“Jared is a champion of the 'we're in this together' school of economics,” said Chuck Sheketoff, executive director of the Oregon Center for Public Policy. “He combines a rare ability to explain complex economic issues in plain language with strong concerns about the challenges faced by low-income, vulnerable and middle-class Americans.”

OCPP and the Wayne Morse Center for Law and Politics at the University of Oregon have organized Bernstein’s two talks:

In Eugene, January 28 at 5:30 p.m. Location: Wayne Morse Center for Law, Room 175 in Knight Law Center, 1515 Agate St. on the UO campus

In Portland, January 29 at 7:00 p.m. Location: UO Portland Center, Room WS142/144, 70 NW Couch St.
