Lecture to address economics, politics of globalization

On Thursday, March 29, Oakland University’s School of Business Administration will present the 2007 Alice Conner Gorlin Memorial Lecture featuring Matthew J. Slaughter, member of the President’s Council of Economic Advisers and Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College. Slaughter will present “The Economics and Politics of Globalization,” addressing perennial questions about the benefits and costs of the global economy. The event is free and open to the public at no charge. It will begin at 3 p.m. in 242 Elliott Hall.

Alice Conner Gorlin was an esteemed professor of economics at Oakland University from 1972 until her death in 1987. She gained international recognition as a scholar of the Soviet economy. Her dedication to the role of human beings as citizens of the world led Gorlin’s friends to establish this memorial lecture series to promote understanding of international issues and events.
