SAN ANTONIO Peter R.

The lecture is free and open to the public and seating is available on a first-come, first-seated basis. Tickets or reservations are not required.


Orszag was director of the Congressional Budget Office for two years while George W.

He served in the Obama administration until July 2010 and is currently vice chairman (Institutional Clients Group) at Citigroup, Inc. and a member of the senior strategic advisory group there. Prior to joining Citigroup in January 2011, he served as a Distinguished Visiting Fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations and as a contributing columnist at The New York Times.  He has co-authored or co-edited a number of books, including Protecting the Homeland, Aging Gracefully: Ideas to Improve Retirement Security in America, Saving Social Security: A Balanced Approach, and American Economic Policy in the 1990s. He obtained a doctorate in economics from the London School of Economics, which he attended as a Marshall Scholar.


The Trinity University Distinguished Lecture Series is made possible by an endowment gift from Mr. and Mrs. Walter F. Brown of San Antonio .
