The Economics and Business Department welcomes Geoffrey R. Woglom, the Richard S.Volpert '56 Professor of Economics at Amherst College, to present the next lecture in its 2013-14 Seminar Series. Woglom is a macroeconomist concentrating on analyzing the effects of financial markets on macroeconomic stability. Most recently, he has become interested in studying monetary policy of the Reserve Bank of South Africa, which has had the challenging task of promoting strong economic growth to alleviate poverty and unemployment, while avoiding rapid inflation by adopting the inflation-targeting strategy. He is also interested in higher education finance, particularly among the top liberal arts colleges.
