In Conversation with: Monika Piazzesi on Inflation

Join us online for the next installment of "In Conversation with SIEPR Scholars," featuring Monika Piazzesi, SIEPR Senior Fellow and the Joan Kenny Professor of Economics at Stanford, on Wednesday, July 21 from 3 - 4pm PT. 

Monika will be discussing inflation and, in particular, lessons from the past and predictions for the future. She will also explore real estate as a good hedge against inflation and whether some inflation may be a good thing.

This small-group conversation, moderated by SIEPR Director Mark Duggan, will offer participants the opportunity to learn more about Monika's latest research, ask questions, and engage in an open dialogue.
