An Evening with Elliot Parker and Kate Marshall

Please join us for an evening with University of Nevada, Reno economics professor Elliot Parker and the 2006-2013 Nevada State Treasurer, Kate Marshall on Thursday, September 7, at 7 pm. Parker and Marshall will discuss their new book, Nevada's Great Recession: Looking Back, Moving Forward, with a Q&A, and signing to follow. 

Nevada's Great Recession

About the book: Of all economic recessions experienced by the United States in the postwar period, the Great Recession that began in 2008 was the deepest, longest, and most destructive. Nevada was among the hardest hit states, its people reeling from the aftereffects, and the state government also experiencing a severe fiscal crisis. University of Nevada economics professor Elliott Parker and then-State Treasurer Kate Marshall make sense of what went wrong and why, with the hope the state will learn lessons to prevent past mistakes from being made again.

About the authors: Elliott Parker is professor of economics at the University of Nevada, Reno, where he has made a home since 1992. He has taught comparative and international economics, and the principles of microeconomics to thousands of Nevada students. Kate Marshall (nee Soltero) is the former State Treasurer of Nevada. She was first elected in 2006 and re-elected in 2010.
