The Eugene W. Stetson School of Business and Economics is co-sponsoring the Third Annual Southeastern International/Development Economics Workshop with the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta’s Americas Center on Dec. 4 at the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta.
“We have received the most paper submissions and participants yet for this workshop. This growing interest reflects the importance of global development and the need to understand our interdependence with other economic regions,” said Dr. Penelope Prime, organizer and professor in the Stetson School of Business and Economics. “Since the first workshop in 2007, Stetson School of Business and Economics has partnered with the Americas Center at the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta, which is responsible for international research. This workshop reinforces our emphasis on international economics and business.”
The session subjects include a number of issues in international economics related to health economics, education, resource allocation, emigration and financing economic growth. Among the papers to be presented is one co-authored by Mercer finance professor Dr. Vijaya Subrahmanyam, “Does non-interest income impact bank return and risk in emerging markets? The case of India.” The conference will conclude at 5 p.m. with closing remarks from Dr. Prime.
