Hutchinson Lecture

Lerner College of Business & Economics invites you to attend the annual Hutchinson Lecture being held on April 12.

This year's guest lecturer is Greg Mankiw, Robert M. Beren Professor of Economics at Harvard University.

As a student, he studied economics at Princeton University and MIT. As a teacher, he has taught macroeconomics, microeconomics, statistics, and principles of economics. He even spent one summer long ago as a sailing instructor on Long Beach Island.

Professor Mankiw is a prolific writer and a regular participant in academic and policy debates. His research includes work on price adjustment, consumer behavior, financial markets, monetary and fiscal policy, and economic growth. His published articles have appeared in academic journals, such as the American Economic Review, Journal of Political Economy, and Quarterly Journal of Economics, and in more widely accessible forums, such as The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, and Fortune.

He has written two popular textbooks—the intermediate-level textbook Macroeconomics (Worth Publishers) and the introductory textbook Principles of Economics (South-Western/Thomson). Principles of Economics has sold over a million copies and has been translated into twenty languages.

In addition to his teaching, research, and writing, Professor Mankiw has been a research associate of the National Bureau of Economic Research, an adviser to the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston and the Congressional Budget Office, and a member of the ETS test development committee for the advanced placement exam in economics. From 2003 to 2005 he served as Chairman of the President's Council of Economic Advisers.

The Hutchinson Lecture series was established in 1990 to honor the distinguished academic career of Harry D. Hutchinson, who taught in the Department of Economics at the University of Delaware from 1959 until his retirement in 1989. His career was distinguished by excellence in teaching and scholarship, especially in the area of macroeconomics. His very successful textbook, Money, Banking & The U.S. Economy, was the foundation for many students’ introduction to financial institutions. Harry Hutchinson passed away in July, 2005.

Each year a distinguished scholar and policy-maker in the area of macroeconomics or monetary policy is invited to the University of Delaware to present the Hutchinson Lecture.
