Alternate Thursdays • 10 a.m.-11:30 a.m. • Mackey Auditorium
January 18 • February 1, 15 • March 1, 15, (29 break) • April 5
This multimedia course goes behind the headlines of these uncertain economic times. Each class focuses on “anchor” topics as well as a brisk review of recent personal finance, economic and business news from such leading publications as the Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, The Economist, Consumer Reports, Money Magazine and regional and local periodicals. Participants are encouraged to bring up topic areas they wish to explore. With so many retirement “nest eggs” dependent on financial markets, “Money News” provides participants with insights and vital discussion on issues affecting their personal economic security.
