The Hutchinson Lecture in Macroeconomic Policy
The Hutchinson Lecture series was established in 1990 to honor the distinguished academic career of Harry D. Hutchinson. Harry Hutchinson earned his Ph.D. in Economics from the University of Michigan. He joined the University of Delaware in 1959 and remained there for thirty years until his retirement in 1989. His career was distinguished by excellence in teaching and scholarship, especially in the area of macroeconomics. His very successful textbook, Money, Banking & The U.S. Economy, was the foundation for many students’ introduction to financial institutions. Harry Hutchinson passed away in July, 2005.
