The dubious state of the American economy provides the backdrop for an upcoming special lecture at Widener Law that is free and open to the public.
“Improving Financial Stability” is the title of the talk to be presented by William Poole, distinguished scholar in residence at the Alfred Lerner College of Business & Economics at the University of Delaware. Poole will visit the Delaware campus on Thursday, Oct. 8 at 5 p.m. His hour-long lecture will be held in the Ruby R. Vale Moot Courtroom.
In the first half of the program, Poole is expected to discuss his thoughts on the U.S. Treasury and the Federal Reserve System – the central banking system for the United States – and how he believes both lack a vision for the future at a time when one is desperately needed. He will also share his views on what that vision ought to be. The remainder of the program will be open for audience questions and discussion.
Poole holds an undergraduate degree from Swarthmore College, and an MBA and Ph.D. from the University of Chicago. His teaching interests lie in macroeconomics and monetary economics. He joined the University of Delaware faculty in fall 2008.
The lecture is presented by Widener Law and its Institute of Delaware Corporate and Business Law
