International Finance and Economics
Geographies pertaining to finance, economics, development and global markets have been the focus of public interest and (at times) great concern in recent years and are of interest to geographers, economists, financial analysts, and political scientists, among others. This special track of sessions will examine world economic and financial fluctuations and reactions to them.
The special track of sessions will begin Friday afternoon, and paper sessions will run through Sunday evening. Distinguished guest Jeffrey Sachs will speak as part of this theme in a special session scheduled for 11:50 am on Monday, February 27, 2012.
