Response to economic crisis to be subject of Wichita lecture


Tomorrow night at Friends University Dr. Brian Domitrovic of Sam Houston State University will deliver a lecture titled “Economic Crisis: Have We Learned from History?” Domitrovic is the author of the book Econoclasts: The Rebels Who Sparked the Supply-Side Revolution and Restored American Prosperity.

In an email message Professor Domitrovic gave a preview of his lecture: “I’ll discuss the history of policy responses to economic crisis over the last century. The unbroken record of that history is that when the crisis was met with stable money from the Fed and income tax cuts, the crisis was dispatched; and that when solutions other than this supply-side policy mix were applied, the crisis festered until the proper cure came. I’ll devote special attention to the 1919-21 and 1961 crises, before reserving words for the stagflation era and the supply-side solution that ended it. The lessons for today should jump off the page.”

Domitrovic’s website is Econoclasts.

This free lecture and following reception is Tuesday April 20, from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm, in rooms 101-102 of the Marriage & Family Therapy facility on the Friends campus. It’s building number 10 on this map, just north of Kellogg Drive on Hiram Street.

This event, which is part of the Law, Liberty & the Market lecture series, is underwritten by the Fred C. and Mary R. Koch Foundation in Wichita.

    Any chance this presentation will be video taped and put on the internet later? Or perhaps audio recorded and podcasted? I’ve heard of the economic crisis of 1919-21 before and the differences between today, but I’d like to learn more but can’t attend tomorrow.

  2. I don’t know about recordings, but I’ll be attending and I intend to write a report based on the lecture.
