Mr. Clarida will speak on world issues of the day. In conjunction with the exhibit in The Perkin Gallery - Alexander Hamilton: First Secretary of the Treasury

Washington and Wall Street 2013:  What Would Mr. Hamilton Think?
In his talk, Richard Clarida – Lowell Harriss Professor of Economics at Columbia University, Global Strategic Adviser with PIMCO, and a former Assistant Secretary of the United States Treasury  – will survey and assess today’s  political, financial, and economic landscape from the  perspective of our nation’s first Treasury Secretary, Alexander Hamilton.

Although so much has changed in the 250 years since Alexander Hamilton made his mark as one of our most innovative and influential founding fathers, there is a great deal about today’s Washington and Wall Street that he would immediately recognize, much of  which he would likely bemoan, but some of which he would surely take great pride in creating. At the conclusion of Professor’s Clarida’s  talk there will be ample time for a lively question and answer session.

Richard Clarida is a local Southport resident.
