Today, the economy is perhaps the most prevalent issue on people’s minds — and on Oct. 22, students and members of the Penn community can hear about the government’s economic policy firsthand.

Lawrence Summers, the director of the National Economic Council and assistant to the President for Economic Policy, will speak in Irvine Auditorium on Oct. 22.

Summers advised both former Presidents Ronald Reagan and Bill Clinton on economic policy and served as the chief economist for the World Bank from 1991 to 1993. He was the president of Harvard University from 2001 to 2006.

The event is part of the 2009 Granoff Forum on International Development and the Global Economy, hosted by the School of Arts and Sciences.

Free tickets will be available to SAS students at the Annenberg Center for Performing Arts Box Office starting tomorrow. The box office is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday.
