In the ongoing event series, A Meeting of the Minds: Business and the Human, UChicago brings together faculty to explore how commonalities and differences in these separate spheres can lead us to a richer grasp of the economic human being.
At our most recent Meeting of the Minds event, Economics East and West, Chicago Booth professor Austan D. Goolsbee and UChicago professor Dali Yang came together to discuss the economies of the United States and Asia.
Here, we present further resources from Chicago Booth on our two speakers and on the global economy. We encourage you to explore, and we hope our events and resources inspire further insights and dialogue and help inform your perspective on global business issues.

February 15, 2021 | New York Times
“The onus should be on anybody who says the economy is about to overheat,” said Chicago Booth’s Austan D. Goolsbee. “There have been many prominent voices saying that—that there was about to be inflation—for more than 10 years.”
Many of the topics touched on by Professors Yang and Goolsbee during Economics East and West overlap with the recent Economic Outlook series hosted in January and early February by Chicago Booth. During lively conversations in three Economic Outlook events focused on the US, Asia, and EMEA (Europe, the Middle East, and Africa), Booth and UChicago economics experts surveyed the critical factors at play for the global economy.
