Join Alex Marshall, journalist, author and senior fellow at the Regional Plan Association, for a lively discussion as he presents his new book, The Surprising Design of Market Economies.  Debunking the argument that free markets are better off when left alone, Marshall’s book shows that all markets have been built on artificial structures, rather than coming into existence on their own. Marshall will argue for the importance of governmental regulation of the market economy and offer a broad exploration of other factors that make markets work. His easily relatable case studies serve as a primer for the amateur economist in all of us.

Co-presented by the City of San Jose and the Presidio Graduate School.
