R. Glenn Hubbard

The Journal of Economic Education, 2004, vol. 35, issue 4, 391-394

Abstract: Over the past two decades, the rising number of outlets for communication through cable networks and electronic broadcasting (not to mention self-promoting Web "blogs") has stimulated the demand for economic commentary. Only the academic economist, as "public intellectual," can provided this commentary in a coherent and rigorous way via the three levels of communication described in this article.
