Inflation, taxes, unemployment, supply chain: economic concerns affect everyone. What factors push and pull the drivers of our economy? Are we still experiencing economic effects from the pandemic? Join us as our experts discuss what a well-functioning economy looks like. We’ll investigate how supply, demand, and many other factors influence the relative wealth of our nation—and its people.

Michael Munger, Professor of Political Science, Trinity College of Arts & Sciences

Lisa Gennetian, Professor of Public Policy, Sanford School of Public Policy

Becoming an informed voter is simultaneously easier and more difficult than ever before. Candidates have unprecedented reach and access to voters, but so do political action committees and other partisan influencers. Enter the fray with us as we look beyond the headlines, memes and soundbites. Duke experts will explore a range of viewpoints on current political issues such as voting rights, data privacy, the economy, health care and more. Join us as we use a research-based approach to consider the contemporary political landscape and the historical context that has shaped it.
