To take any and all measures necessary for a healthy economy.Harry S. Truman
Plan now to join us on October 14, 2015 for the 2015 Truman Medal for Economic Policy Award Luncheon honoring John B. Taylor. Dr. Taylor is the George P. Shultz Senior Fellow in Economics at the Hoover Institution and the Mary and Robert Raymond Professor of Economics at Stanford University. He chairs the Hoover Working Group on Economic Policy and is director of Stanford’s Introductory Economics Center.
The Truman Medal for Economic Policy was created in 2005 to recognize extraordinary achievement in the formation and conduct of economic policy. The Medal is given biennially at an awards ceremony and luncheon in Kansas City, Missouri.
The Truman Medal for Economic Policy reflects on the creation of the Council of Economic Advisers (CEA) under President Harry S. Truman. The CEA was established by the Employment Act of 1946, which President Truman signed on February 20, 1946. The act committed the government, as Truman described it, “to take any and all measures necessary for a healthy economy.”
