A Look Back at the 2014 Annual Conference

POSTED: January 21, 2015 | BY: Daniel Thompson | TAGS: , , , , , ,

The Council for Economic Education’s 2014 Annual Conference in Dallas, Texas was a rousing success with 475 educators attending the Conference. Attendees included instructors from eight countries, 200 new attendees, and 250 K-12 teachers from 34 states.

Conference goers were able to hear talks from top economists such as Richard W. Fisher and Alan B. Krueger. Fisher, the President and Chief Executive Officer at the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas, spoke at the Teacher Recognition Luncheon on the importance of education and his perspective on the robust growth of regional economies. Later that day, Krueger, a Bendheim Professor of Economics and Public Affairs at the Wilson School at Princeton University, spoke to attendees about the financial crisis of 2008-09 through the lens of behavioral economics.
