Please Join US For An Economics Education Workshop On:
"Subprime Lending, Credit Crisis and Housing Market Collapse in USA"
Workshop Leader: Dr. Amar Parai
Chair and Professor of Economics
The workshop will focus on the subprime lending issue in housing industry, and discuss its implications in the context of the recent credit crisis and housing market collapse in the US economy. The prospect of an economy-wide recession in the United States and a concomitant global slowdown on the one hand, and the steadily rising oil price led general inflation on the other are shown to have raised the possibility of a worldwide 'stagflation' in the near future. The effectiveness of macroeconomic policies taken (or to be taken) will also be highlighted.

We will hold a one-day workshop titled, Teaching Macroeconomics in High Schools which will be lead by Dr. Amar K. Parai, Professor and Chair, Department of Economics, School of Business at SUNY Fredonia. This informational workshop is focused on the basic macroeconomic issues of the day - inflation, unemployment, current account imbalances, globalization, outsourcing, jobless growth, fiscal policies and monetary policies. The significance of social and other non-economic issues such as environmental protection and inequity in the distribution of income will be highlighted, and the resulting intricacies and implications of domestic policies will be discussed.

We look forward to meeting each of you in the coming months. In the meantime, if there is any assistance the Center can provide you during the year, please contact us.
