Brandeis economists on America's economic outlook
Attempts to repair damage caused by the bursting of the housing bubble, the meltdown on Wall Street, and the shrinking international economy were analyzed by two stellar Brandeis University economists at the Brandeis Spotlight Forum on March 19 at Boston’s Old State House.
Lisa M. Lynch, dean of the Heller School of Social Policy and Management, and Bruce R. Magid, dean of the International Business School, discussed whether officials and regulators are doing enough and how deep the downturn will be.
Lynch is chair of the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston and a member of the Governor’s Council of Economic Advisers. She was chief economist at the US Department of Labor in 1995-97.
Magid is former managing director and chief international economist at Bank of America. He serves on the board and is treasurer of the Massachusetts International Trade Council, and holds the Martin and Ahuva Gross Chair in Financial Markets and Institutions.
