This on-campus series of lectures covers a variety of economic topics and is presented by scholars from both the private and public sectors. Open to all economics faculty and students, these presentations occur roughly once a week during the academic year. 

The series is funded by a gift from Iowa alum Clarence Tow, who received his undergraduate and master's degrees from the university. Tow spent a large portion of his professional career with the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City, where he served as director of research, vice president, and senior vice president of economic research. His gift provides the resources to host a lecture series that would inspire discussion and progressive thought.
