Newberry College Business and Political Science Programs to Present “Bailouts and Bickering: The Ongoing Economic and Political Crises”

September 19, 2011

NEWBERRY, S.C. – The Newberry College business and political science programs will present “Bailouts and Bickering: The Ongoing Economic and Political Crises,” a mini round table discussion at 2 pm Sept. 21 in Room 309 of the Leonora McClurg Center at Newberry College. The panel will feature Dr. Steven Schweizer, Associate Professor of Political Science, and Dr. Joseph Franklin, Professor of Business Administration. 


According to Schweizer, the round table was inspired by the increased concern Americans have expressed over the country’s economic and political conditions.  The meeting will give students a chance to speak on how they feel.  “This is an opportunity for students to become more aware of the serious economic and political problems facing the U.S. and the world,” Schweizer says. 


Among the topics to be covered will be the present and future condition of the economy, as well as the politics of the American Jobs Act proposed by President Obama earlier this month.  “We will be addressing topics that will affect our students’ lives today, after graduation, and in the future,” Schweizer says.  “Rest assured the presentation will benefit all interested in the future of the country.”
