Oct. 9, 2015: Alaska budget talk with Gunnar Knapp

by Michelle Saport  |   

Friday, Oct. 9, 11:30 a.m.-12:45 p.m. Rasmuson Hall, Room 117

You're invited to a talk by Gunnar Knapp, director of UAA's Institute of Social and Economic Research, about the state's budget problem and options for solving it.

Attendees will also have the chance to play the Balancing-Alaska's-Budget game. Spin the oil-price roulette wheel to find out how much oil revenue you have. Then decide how much to spend and how to pay for it-including whether to spend down savings, add taxes or use Permanent Fund earnings.

For more information, get in touch with Alex James, assistant professor in the Department of Economics and Public Policy, at ajames27@uaa.alaska.edu.
