The Department of Economics, California State University, Chico, presents guest lecturer Robert Leeson, currently the Visiting Professor of Economics at Stanford University and a Hoover Institute Fellow, on Tuesday, Aug. 31 at 7 p.m. in Holt 170.

Leeson was appointed as an adjunct professor in the Notre Dame School of Business in 2008. His articles have appeared in a number of the world’s leading journals, including the Economic Journal, Economica, The Australian Quarterly and History of Political Economy.

Leeson was ranked 17th (jointly with Nobel Laureate Paul Samuelson) in the list of the world’s top 500 economists on the basis of the number of journal articles included in the ECONLIT database of the American Economic Association.

Milton Friedman made Leeson his de facto literary executor by granting permission to reproduce all his books, articles, correspondence and diary entries in “Milton Friedman’s Collected Writings.”

This lecture is free and open to the public.
