Dean Baker to Deliver MECEP’s 2014 Shepard Lee Lecture
CEPR's Dean Baker will deliver the next Shepard Lee lecture in Portland, Maine. He'll be speaking about full employment, the main topic of his most recent book, Getting Back to Full Employment: A Better Bargain for Working People, coauthored with Jared Bernstein, which Robert Reich has called “a gem of a book.”
The Maine Center for Economic Policy (MECEP) initiated the Shepard Lee Lecture series to honor the noted entrepreneur, civic leader, political advisor and advocate for justice who has contributed to Maine’s public life for more than five decades. MECEP is Maine’s leading non-profit research and policy development organization.
The event is free and open to the public. It will begin at 6:00 p.m. followed by questions from the audience and a reception at the conclusion of the program.
