"Overdraft" University Symposia Series
Stanford University's Institute for Economic Policy Research
November 8, 2012
The Travelers Institute hosted the West Coast launch of the “Overdraft” University Symposia Series with the Stanford Institute for Economic Policy Research (SIEPR), which seeks to improve long-term economic policy. SIEPR joined the series to host one of its first ever documentary screenings. After watching the film, SIEPR Deputy Director Gregory L. Rosston took to the stage with U.S. Representative Anna G. Eshoo from California’s 18th District. Rosston began by recognizing the film’s strong Stanford contingent – two Stanford alumni (Senator Kent Conrad and Mayor Cory Booker) and the father (President Bill Clinton) of a Stanford graduate. He then introduced the congresswoman, who serves as the ranking member of the Energy and Commerce Committee’s Subcommittee on Communications and Technology.Click for a full summary.
