The Vanderbilt Project on Unity and American Democracy is hosting a virtual Q&A on Wednesday, Sept. 28, at noon CT with Mark Zandi, chief economist of Moody’s Analytics, where he will answer audience questions related to the U.S. economy in the lead-up to this November’s midterm elections.
The economy is at the forefront of many voters’ minds as election season approaches, and much media coverage devolves into speculation and political punditry instead of offering a detailed distillation of the economic forces behind the headline numbers. Our Ask an Economist event will aim to equip voters with facts and evidence from an economic expert as we head to the polls in the coming months.
