How Prosperous are the 50 States of the USA? A conversation with the Legatum Institute on the US Prosperity Index Photo

​What is the U.S
Prosperity Index? What are the metrics in ranking the states based on their
scores? How does your home state match up? 

Join the Taubman Center in welcoming
the Legatum Institute, a London-based think tank specializing in the
advancement of education of the public in national and international political,
social and economic policy. Shaun Flanagan and Amanda Ahadizadeh, of the
Legatum Institute, will discuss the recently released U.S. Prosperity Index, a
dynamic tool for researchers and policy-makers which measures states across 11
pillars of prosperity, using a variety of state-level metrics in order to
calculate a prosperity score for each state.

Taubman Center Executive Director, Rafael Carbonell, will moderate the conversation. 

Lunch will be served.
