SCEPA Seminar Series
SCEPA hosts an annual seminar series featuring highly respected economists from government, academia, international organizations and foundations to address current economic policy issues. This year, SCEPA is working to responsibly address the economic recession with seminars addressing the role of the state in job creation and economic recovery.

SCEPA's lecture series consists of two annual events: The Irene & Bernard L. Schwartz Lecture, which features a major public figure in economic policy, and the Robert Heilbroner Memorial Lecture on the Future of Capitalism, which features a distinguished, scholarly talk on long-term economic trends.
