For our final event of 2020, we welcome New York Times columnist, best-selling author, and Nobel prize–winning economist Paul Krugman to Montclair to discuss his latest book, Arguing with Zombies: Economics, Politics, and the Fight for a Better Future. Don’t miss this accessible, compelling overview of today’s major policy issues, moderated by renowned journalist, political commentator, and former White House Press Secretary, Bill Moyers.
In Arguing with Zombies, Krugman tackles many of the misunderstandings of basic economics, or 'zombie economics', taking stock of where the United States has come from and where it’s headed.
