Northwest Neighbors Village member, Forest Hills neighbor, and renowned economist Alice Rivlin will speak to the NNV community at 3 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 28. Her talk is titled The Economy, Election, Seniors and Young People.
Ms. Rivlin is well known in Washington for her role in turning around the DC economy as chair of the District of Columbia Financial Responsibility and Management Assistance Authority (the D.C. Control Board) from 1998 to 2001. She has gained national recognition for her role as head of Office of Management and Budget (1994-96) and the first director of the Congressional Budget Office (1975-83).
Dr. Rivlin is a visiting professor at the Public Policy Institute of Georgetown University and a senior fellow in the Economic Studies program at the Brookings Institution, where she directs the Greater Washington Research program. Before returning to Brookings, she served as vice chair of the Federal Reserve Board.
