The Importance of Full Employment and the Routes for Getting There
Multipurpose Room of the Student Resource Building at UCSB
University of California, Santa Barbara
Isla Vista, CA 93117
As part of a year-long programming series at UC Santa Barbara, "The Great Society at Fifty: Democracy in America 1964/2014," CEPR co-director Dean Baker will speak on "The Importance of Full Employment and the Routes for Getting There."
On this fiftieth anniversary of the Great Society, UCSB's initiative provides an opportunity for teaching, public outreach, and community engagement on an extraordinarily broad range of still contested commitments (to political and social rights, economic and social opportunities, more inclusive immigration policies) that may once again be approaching historical turning points much as they were half a century ago.
This event is free and open to the public, RSVPs are appreciated but not required. RSVP at http://tinyurl.com/mfjp722
