Shaping the National Conversation

In the course of a month, three Fuqua faculty members helped drive the national conversation about some of the most pressing issues facing the United States through separate opinion pieces in The New York Times. Professor David McAdams proposed a better way for federal lawmakers to negotiate budgets in “Changing the Debt-Ceiling Game.” Professor Aaron “Ronnie” Chatterji explained in “The Bad News for Local Job Markets” that not all communities can count on health care or education as economic development engines. Professor Peter Ubel argued in his piece “Doctor, First Tell Me What It Costs” that out-of-pocket expenses for patients should be a factor in determining treatment options.

Senior Associate Dean for Faculty Jim Anton explains that "what we’ve been seeing in the U.S. for the past few years with natural gas and petroleum, and as the U.S. becomes a net exporter thanks to fracking technologies taking root, (is that) the energy infrastructure needs energy financing."
