Honoraria for other events are negotiable and very modest, depending on the type of the event. Contact me for information.

Travel expenses outside the D.C. area include coach air or rail fare, hotel (depending on distance traveled), and small amount for meals not provided at the event. Travel expenses apply to any event outside the Washington, D.C. area. I am available throughout the United States, Canada, and many international locations.

Speaking services are in my personal capacity as an economist and not as an official service of the Sunwater Institute, my employer. Lectures, talks, and seminars that I offer may not reflect the views of the Sunwater Institute.
