Hudson Institute Center for Employment Policy
cordially invites you to a luncheon seminar entitled
Entrepreneurs in Europe and the United States: Who Has It Better?
Betsy and Walter Stern Conference Center
1015 15th Street, N.W., 6th Floor, Washington, D.C. 20005
The performance of labor markets in Europe and in the United States departs significantly in many aspects. Low skilled jobs have been substituted away for machines in Europe much more so than in the U.S., while technological progress at the high-tech sector is faster in the U.S. than in Europe. Professor Alberto Alesina of Harvard University will present a new, unpublished study, “Technology and Labor Regulations,” and describe how the different structure of labor regulations in Europe and the United States leads to different challenges for entrepreneurs.
The Honorable Edward Lazear, Chairman, Council of Economic Advisers, will deliver a luncheon address on the economy.
