JACKSONVILLE, FL / ACCESSWIRE / June 19, 2019 / GEE Group Inc. (NYSE American: JOB) ("the Company" or "GEE Group"), a provider of professional staffing services and human resource solutions, today announced that influential economist and GEE Group Board Member, Dr. Arthur B. Laffer, will receive the Presidential Medal of Freedom from President Donald J. Trump today in a private ceremony in the Oval Office of the White House. This prestigious award is the Nation's highest civilian honor bestowed upon individuals for especially meritorious contribution to the security or national interests of the United States, to world peace, or to cultural or other significant public or private endeavors.
Dr. Laffer is widely considered the "Father of Supply-Side Economics" and is one of the most famous economists in American history. He is best known for the "Laffer Curve" (first sketched on a napkin in 1974), which illustrates that tax cuts could actually increase tax revenue by spurring economic growth. This economic theory establishes the strong incentive effects of lower tax rates that spur investment, production, jobs, wages, economic growth and tax compliance.
Among the accomplishments in his distinguished career, Arthur Laffer served as the first Chief Economist of the Office of Management and Budget, a top economic advisor to President Ronald Reagan, and as a consultant to the Department of the Treasury and Department of Defense.
Derek E. Dewan, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of GEE Group, commented, "We are most proud of Dr. Laffer as the recipient of this esteemed award given to him by President Trump for his outstanding public service and economic contributions to our country. GEE Group is fortunate to have him on the Board of Directors and appreciates the vast experience on business matters that he brings to the Company."
