Lance Taylor: "Demand Drives Growth"

September 4, 2017

On November 7, 2017, Lance Taylor presented, “Demand Drives Growth.” Taylor is economics professor emeritus at The New School, former director of SCEPA, and a well-known macroeconomist. Recently, Taylor has taken up environmental macroeconomics, under standard and demand-driven growth models. In this work, he analyzes the short- and long-term social cost of greenhouse gasses and climate change, emission control legislation, and the role of green enterprise in economic recovery and sustainability, GDP and employment growth, and service-based economies.

The event was part of the Fall 2017 Seminar Series hosted by SCEPA and The New School Economics Department.


SCEPA works to focus the public economics debate on the role government can and should play in the real productive economy - that of business, management, and labor - to raise living standards, create economic security, and attain full employment.
