The 2007/2008 Werner Sichel Economic Lecture Seminar Series features six outstanding economists whose presentations will focus on the challenges and opportunities of globalization and international development. All presentations are free and open to the public. Globalization is primarily an economic phenomenon, but it has socio-cultural and political dimensions that significantly impact human welfare and development. The series' speakers will address various dimensions of globalization including poverty, foreign aid, global justice, global financial flows, and patent and knowledge spillovers to developing countries. In addition to a public lecture, each guest scholar will present an academic seminar for economics faculty and graduate students. The Lecture-Seminar Series is eligible for academic credit in coordination with the graduate and/or advanced undergraduate economics course, Guest Economist Seminar (59 10, 5920), under the supervision of WMU Economics Professor Asefa.
