Alan Reynolds, a senior fellow at the Cato Institute, will lecture on “income and wealth inequality” on Nov. 3 from 4-5:30 pm at Annenbury Forum, Carswell Hall, and Wake Forest University. His topic is a major bone of contention between free-market thinkers and those who would advocate greater government regulation of markets and industries.
Reynolds is a former director of economic research at the Hudson Institute. He served as research director with the National Commission on Tax Reform and Economic Growth, an advisor to the National Commission on the Cost of Higher Education, and as a member of the OMB transition team in 1981. His studies have been published by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, the Joint Economic Committee, the Federal Reserve Banks of Atlanta and St. Louis and the Australian Stock Exchange.
Author of Income and Wealth (Greenwood Press, 2006), Reynolds has written for numerous publications since 1971 including The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, National Review, The New Republic, Fortune and The Harvard Business Review. A former columnist with Forbes and Reason, his weekly column is now nationally syndicated.
