Distinguished Alumnus Will Speak to Faculty
We are proud to welcome Mr. Joseph Carson, Director of Global Economic Research at AllianceBernstein, who will visit YSU on Monday, February 11, 2013. “Many Roads Can Lead to Wall Street” is the title of his presentation at 3:30 p.m. in the Auditorium of the Williamson College of Business Administration. At 6:00 p.m., he will discuss the current state of the global economy and compare the current recovery to previous business cycles in room 2202 of Williamson. While the afternoon session has an intended audience of undergraduate students, both events are free and open to students, faculty, and the public.
Mr. Carson graduated from YSU with a M.A. in Economics in 1976. His distinguished career includes positions at the U.S. Department of Commerce in the Chief Economist’s Office, at General Motors in the Market Analysis Division, and on Wall Street (Merrill Lynch, Chemical Bank, Dean Witter, Deutsche Bank, and UBS Warburg on the sell-side, and now AllianceBernstein on the buy-side). Mr. Carson’s blog (see: blog.alliancebernstein.com/index.php/author/carsonj) is frequently referenced by national news organizations such as Bloomberg, The Wall Street Journal, Business Week, Fox Business News, and Reuters.
Mr. Carson’s visit is co-sponsored by the Williamson College of Business Administration, the Department of Economics, and the YSU Economics Club.
