Speaker examines scope of international financial crisis

Wednesday, April 07, 2010
"Assessing the Scope of the International Financial Crisis and Growing Government Debt" is presented from 6-8 p.m. Monday, April 19.
 
The recent financial challenges haven’t been limited to the United States. The crisis is affecting every developed country in the world, and the first step toward solving the problem lies in finding its roots and impacts.

To that end, Laramie County Community College hosts the International Studies Scholars Lectures. Tom Byrne, Senior Vice President with Moody’s Sovereign Risk Unit, will present a talk titled Assessing the Scope of the International Financial Crisis and Growing Government Debt: Shared Challenges Facing the US, EU, and East Asian Governments. Byrne will speak from 6-8 p.m. Monday, April 19, in LCCC’s Center for Conferences and Institutes Centennial Room.

The lecture is sponsored by the LCCC International Studies Program and Center for Community Engagement in collaboration with the UW International Studies Program, and it is free and open to the public. This state-wide International Studies speaker series is funded by a U.S. Department of Education grant the University of Wyoming International Studies Program received in partnership with the Wyoming community colleges. The International Studies Scholars Lecture Series is designed to raise awareness of global issues among Wyoming college students and the state’s general population.
