May 15 SPARC Dinner
Michael Boskin to Provide Outlook for Economy and Economic Policy

Los Altos Hills, California:  The South Peninsula Area Republican Coalition (SPARC) will hold their Monthly Speakers Series Dinner at the Fremont Hills Country Club on Wednesday, May 15, 2019. The featured speaker will be world-renowned authority on the economy, Michael J. Boskin.

Michael J. Boskin served as Chairman of President George H.W. Bush’s Council of Economic Advisors from 1989 – 1993. Earlier, on Presidential Candidate Ronald Reagan’s Tax Policy Task Force, he helped develop the policies that substantially lowered marginal tax rates, indexed tax brackets for inflation, accelerated depreciation, and created IRAs and 401Ks. He later chaired the blue-ribbon Commission on the Consumer Price Index, whose report has transformed the way government statistical agencies around the world measure inflation, GDP and productivity.

Dr. Boskin is the Tully M. Friedman Professor of Economics and Wohlford Family Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution. He is also Research Associate, National Bureau of Economic Research. He advises governments and businesses globally and writes regularly on economic policy in the Wall Street Journal and on global economics in a bi-monthly column syndicated in 145 countries.
