Many Americans are confused about the current economic and financial crisis. The Whittemore School of Business and Economics is hosting a public seminar Wednesday, Oct. 1, to provide insight and education about what is happening and why.

The seminar, “The Current Economic and Financial Crisis,” begins at 4:30 p.m. in the MUB Theater II. It is free and open to the public.

“The current economic and financial crisis is, perhaps, the most significant since the Great Depression. So many people have been talking with family and friends to try to make sense of these unfolding events. This seminar will provide some background for the current situation and information about possible future consequences,” said Daniel Innis, dean of the Whittemore School. 

Speakers are James Wible, professor of economics; Michael Goldberg, associate professor of economics; and Brian Bolton, assistant professor of finance. Wible is an expert in macroeconomics and monetary theory. Goldberg researches macroeconomic theory, exchange rates, and economic expectations. Bolton’s expertise is in corporate governance, capital structure, and financial markets.

The speakers will make brief presentations to provide background and structure for understanding the current crisis and its possible implications for the future. Following the presentations, the speakers will take questions and discuss the specific concerns of attendees.
