Edward J. Lopez, the BB&T Distinguished Professor of Capitalism at WCU, recently joined Nobel laureate Thomas J. Sargent as featured presenters in the 2014 Burkett Miller Distinguished Lecture Series held at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga.
Sargent discussed events from United States history and how they impacted the development of fiscal policy. Lopez applied public choice theory to historical and current fiscal policies, and highlighted the evolution of common American principles, which historically held to strong fiscal responsibility but have evolved to running annual deficits as a normal occurrence, according to a release from J.R. Clark, the institution’s Probasco Chair of Free Enterprise
