Beach-headshotThe Director of the Heritage Foundation’s Center for Data Analysis will appear as February’s guest speaker for the West Liberty University Economics Club luncheon presenting, “Will Opportunity Keep Knocking? – The Implications of Mounting Federal Debt for the Debt Paying Generation.”  The event will be held at the Fort Henry Club on 14th Street in downtown Wheeling on Monday, Feb. 8, at noon.

William W. Beach oversees Heritage’s original statistical research on taxes, Social Security, crime, education, trade and a host of other issues, ensuring it is both rigorous in its technical scholarship and produced in time to help inform the public debate over the issue.

Before joining Heritage in 1995, Beach held a variety of posts in the public, private and academic sectors. He served as a litigation economist with two Kansas City, Mo., law firms, where he specialized in analyzing how anti-trust legal remedies would alter product pricing and availability. Later, as an economist for Missouri’s Office of Budget and Planning, he designed and managed the state’s econometric model and advised the governor on revenue and economic issues. After a stint in the corporate headquarters of Sprint United Inc., Beach moved to the Washington, D.C., area to serve as president of the Institute for Humane Studies at George Mason University.

A graduate of Washburn University in Topeka, Kan., Beach also holds a Master’s degree in history and economics from the University of Missouri-Columbia. Beach also is a visiting fellow at the University of Buckingham in Great Britain.

The luncheon is open to the public at a cost of $10, payable at the door. While reservations are not required, attendees are encouraged to RSVP by email or phone to Jason Koegler at 304-336-8302 or [email protected]
