Details

This is a new type of UCALL event devoted exclusively to your questions and comments. Do you have questions about the impact of 2020’s traumatic events on the economy? Although it may be years before the full impact is understood, Professor Lewis will share his insights on what we have been through and what may be ahead. In addition to the usual method of typing in questions during the webinar, we will also take advantage of a Zoom feature that allows us to activate the microphones of audience members who would like to state their questions and comments in person. Don’t miss this opportunity to engage in a lively discussion with our guest expert on the economic events of the past year or any other economics-related questions or thoughts you may have.
