Episode 56: Deconstructing the Federal Reserve with George Selgin and Norbert Michel

Episode 02: “Heritage Scholars’ Take on Today’s Pressing Economic Issues” with Jack Spencer and Norbert Michel
The Bill Walton Show: Episode 02 - Bill sits down with two of The Heritage Foundation's top economic experts - Jack Spencer and Norbert Michel - to discuss economic policy, tax reform, the Paris Climate Agreement, Dodd-Frank and more.
Norbert J. Michel is the director of Heritage’s Center for Data Analysis, where he specializes on issues pertaining to financial markets and monetary policy. He edited, and contributed chapters, to two books published by Heritage: The Case Against Dodd–Frank: How the “Consumer Protection” Law Endangers Americans, and Prosperity Unleashed: Smarter Financial Regulation.
Before rejoining Heritage in 2013, Michel was a tenured professor at Nicholls State University’s College of Business, teaching finance, economics and statistics. His earlier stint at Heritage was as a tax policy analyst in the think tank’s Center for Data Analysis from 2002 to 2005. He previously was with the global energy company Entergy, where he built a logistic regression model to help predict bankruptcies of commercial clients. His work allowed Entergy to better monitor monetary losses caused by customers’ delinquent payments.
Michel holds a doctoral degree in financial economics from the University of New Orleans. He received his bachelor of business administration degree in finance and economics from Loyola University. He currently resides in Alexandria, VA.
