Economists provide online Webinar


COLUMBUS — As America moves beyond mere discussion of the world financial crisis and severe economic downturn, policy proposals and decisions are flying left and right.

What are the implications on our world position and on the relationship between rural and urban domestic economies?


Two premier policy economists from The Ohio State University Department of Agricultural Environmental and Development Economics will be sharing their thoughts and answering your questions in a unique online conference being presented by the Department and OSU Extension.

The Economic Crisis and Policy Options Webcast will be streamed online live, March 17 from 10 a.m. to noon EST.

Topics for the day are: The Global Financial Crisis: To Regulate or not to Regulate? by Ian Sheldon, Andersons Professor of International Trade; and The Policy we Choose: Bad or Worse for the Economy? by Mark Partridge, C. William Swank Chair of Rural-Urban Policy.
