Professor is guest lecturer on economic outlook for 2014

Lewis Mandell, professor emeritus and former business dean at the University at Buffalo, will present the lecture “The Economic Outlook for 2014” at 5:30 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 15 at Congregation Kol Shalom.

More than five years after the financial crisis, growth in the U.S. is still very slow and unemployment remains high. Congress continues to take actions that further slow the economy while the Federal Reserve has tried to offset this by greatly expanding the money supply. The net result has been a huge run-up in stock prices which has further widened the gap between the very rich and everyone else.

The lecture is free and open to all. Congregation Kol Shalom is at 9010 Miller Road.
