About This Event

On Wednesday, March 16 at 9:30 a.m. Eastern, the Washington Center for Equitable Growth and the Economic Policy Institute will host economists David Card and Alan Krueger for a 20th anniversary discussion of their seminal work, “Myth and Measurement.”

In “Myth and Measurement,” Card and Krueger used novel empirical methods to show how minimum wage increases improve living standards without necessarily leading to job losses. Card and Krueger will discuss how their work has influenced contemporary debates over raising the minimum wage and informed the development of empirical research in economics. EPI President Lawrence Mishel and Equitable Growth Executive Director Heather Boushey will provide comments.

This event is by invitation only. For questions, please contact Casey Schoeneberger at cschoeneberger@equitablegrowth.org.
