Phi Beta Delta International Forum to Explore ‘Current Economic Meltdown’

Mar 10, 2009
David McClough, visiting assistant professor of economics at Ohio Northern University, will discuss "The Current Economic Meltdown, Recession and Globalization" during the Phi Beta Delta International Forum in the Dicke Forum on Monday, March 16, from 7 to 8 p.m.

McClough will discuss the U.S. economic recession in a global context, with an emphasis on how the decline in the United States has spread to other economies. The discussion will distinguish between the financial crisis and the recession and will include competing policy perspectives, including Keynesian economics.

McClough received his Ph.D. in political economy and public policy from the University of Southern California. He teaches micro and macroeconomics and international economics at ONU. This quarter, McClough is conducting a course in U.S. economic history during the Gilded Age.
