The Recession is Over! Long Live the Recession!
Tuesday, Nov. 9, 12:00-1:00pm, Miller 104
Beyond its obvious economic character, the ongoing global recession has had pronounced social, cultural, and political ramifications. This panel investigates how the economic crisis has been calculated by economists in the United States, impacted politics in Europe, and had profound effects in Asia. Widening the scope of conventional inquiry, the panel examines the quantitative indicators that are used to measure the recession and offers insight into its local and global consequences.
Panelists: Cari Coe (International Affairs), Jennifer Hubbert (SOAN), Eric Tymoigne (Economics), Christopher Wendt (Political Science).
