An economics professor who calls himself a “supply side liberal” has a few ideas about jump-starting the U.S. economy that he will share next week.

Miles Kimball, the Eugene D. Eaton Jr. Chair in Economics and a professor at the University of Colorado Boulder, will present a lecture titled “Restoring American Growth,” on Monday, April 17, from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. in the Benson Earth Sciences Building, Room 185.

Kimball is also the author of a blog called “Confessions of a Supply-Side Liberal” that he dubs a “partisan nonpartisan blog.”

Kimball describes himself as an independent who grew up in an apolitical family, one who holds “many strong opinions—open to revision in response to cogent arguments—that do not line up neatly with either the Republican or Democratic Party.”

He earned his bachelor’s and doctorate degrees in economics from Harvard University, and he holds a master’s in linguistics from Brigham Young University. Formerly a professor of economics at the University of Michigan, he joined the CU Boulder faculty in 2016.

The event is free and open to the public and is sponsored by the CU Boulder Department of Economics.
