Amazon Library in the Van Vorst Building
426 Terry Ave N
Seattle, Washington

Event Details

In the economic world, two things in life are certain: debt & taxes. But in the 2012 uncertainty looms.

Where is the U.S. economy headed? When will unemployment rates drop & inflation rates rise? What will be done to tackle budget deficits, and when?

How much will Europe's debt problems affect their economies, & ours? What more might the Fed & Washington, DC do to the economy? What might the economy forecast for Election Day?

These questions and yours will be addressed by Haas finance professor Jim Wilcox

Jim is a popular professor and guest speaker who teaches in the Finance group as well as the Economic Analysis and Policy group at Haas. Jim joined the Haas School faculty in 1978. His research has focused on macroeconomics, monetary policy, banking, small business finance, and real estate.
