PAST EVENT Friday April 7 2017

Profiles of government corruption often focus on outside groups, such as lobbyists, crony capitalists, and labor unions, that attempt to rig the political system in their favor. Donald Trump has pledged to "drain the swamp."

Less attention is given to the tremendous damage that government insiders—elected officials, bureaucrats, and other public employees—inflict when they enrich themselves at taxpayers' expense. In Inside Job: How Government Insiders Subvert the Public Interest, economist Mark Zupan vividly documents how entrenched government interests across the world abuse their power to subvert the public interest. "[Inside Job is] compelling and important" (Tyler Cowen). "A fascinating and novel contribution to political theory" (Matt Ridley).

Mark Zupan is president of Alfred University. Previously, he served as dean of the University of Rochester's Simon Business School, where he was also the John M. Olin Distinguished Professor of Economics and Public Policy and director of the Bradley Policy Research Center. He has also taught economics at the University of Arizona, University of Southern California, Dartmouth College, and Harvard University. His previous book, Microeconomics: Theory and Applications, is in its twelfth edition. He holds a B.A. from Harvard and a Ph.D. in economics from MIT.
