About The National
All of our programs adhere to a fiercely neutral and nonpartisan ethic. Our popular networking events further serve to brand the National Economists Club as a vital part of the intellectual and professional beat of the nation’s capital. NEC was founded in 1968 by Herb Stein and serves as the DC branch of the National Association for Business Economics.
The National Economists Club encourages the exchange of ideas on economics, business, and policy through meetings featuring leading experts in the field.
Members, mostly from around the nation’s capital, hail from business, government, academe, nonprofits, and international organizations. Our event programming features regular luncheons, receptions, and other events designed for socializing and networking. NEC is affiliated with the National Association for Business Economics, is nonpartisan, and takes no policy positions.
