Structural Opportunities in the US Economy

CEP public lecture


Jason Furman's talk will focus on the three major structural opportunities that he sees in the US economy: the slowdown in health costs; the boom in energy; and recent developments in technology. These issues have the potential to change long-term economic trends and structures. He will discuss the prospects they hold for the economy, the challenges they present, and the role of public policy in fostering them.

Jason Furman (@CEAChair) is the Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers. Prior to this role, he served as the Principal Deputy Director of the National Economic Council. Furman has also previously served as Economic Policy Director for Obama for America, Director of the Hamilton Project at the Brookings Institution, and Special Assistant to the President for Economic Policy during the Clinton Administration. He has conducted research in a wide range of areas, including fiscal policy, tax policy, health economics, Social Security, and monetary policy. Furman earned his Ph.D. in Economics and a M.A. in Government from Harvard University and a M.Sc. in Economics from LSE.

The Centre for Economic Performance (@CEP_LSE) is an interdisciplinary research centre at the LSE Research Laboratory. It was established by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) in 1990 and is now one of the leading economic research groups in Europe.

Members of the public, LSE alumni, LSE students and LSE staff can request one ticket via the online ticket request form which will be live on the weblisting from around 6pm on Tuesday 28 October until at least 12noon on Wednesday 29 October. If at 12noon we have received more requests than there are tickets available, the line will be closed, and tickets will be allocated on a random basis to those requests received. If we have received fewer requests than tickets available, the ticket line will stay open until all tickets have been allocated.

Please note, we cannot control exactly when the ticket line will upload, and publishing delays do sometimes occur. As the system now allows requests to be made over a long period of time, if when you visit this page the ticket line is not live, we would advise revisiting the page at a later time.
