John Umbeck is a celebrated Purdue business school economics professor, public speaker, and researcher who co-founded the school’s Purdue University Research Center in Economics 10 years ago. 


He will discuss his motivation for creating an economics center for the study of government regulations and explain how the science of economics provides us with a unique set of tools that yields valuable insights into the effects of regulations, many of them unexpected, some beneficial, some not. Umbeck will discuss how, with the help of several people, including Purdue President Emeritus Mitch Daniels, PURCE was created.
