PURCE presentation to focus on 'Revolving Door Between Government & Private Sector'

The Purdue University Research Center in Economics (PURCE) is offering a lunchtime presentation on Thursday (Nov. 18) that will focus on "The Revolving Door Between Government & Private Sector."

Mara Faccio, the Duke Realty Chair in Finance, professor of management (finance) and PURCE faculty affiliate, will discuss her development of the first systematic mapping of the revolving door phenomenon in the U.S. across firms, industries, regions and over time. In her research, she has examined the past work experience in executive branch agencies of almost 2 million individuals who cover top corporate positions in almost 400,000 U.S. firms during 2002-18.

The host will be Kevin Mumford, the Kozuch Director of PURCE, and there will be a Q&A following Faccio’s talk.

Protect Purdue safety protocols will be followed, and attendees are required to wear a mask covering their mouth and nose while indoors and not eating. Parking is available in the nearby Grant Street Parking Garage and a parking pass will be provided upon request at check-in.
