Please note: This talk has been cancelled.
We are very fortunate to have Cornell Professor Susan Christopherson visiting UNC on February 6 to discuss her research on how processes associated with the “financialization” of the US and UK economies affect capital investment in manufacturing enterprises.
Her talk will address the following questions: How does financialization affect manufacturing investment? Does it make economic sense to expect the growth of advanced manufacturing in what are considered “post-industrial” economies? And what conditions work against the establishment of robust export-oriented manufacturing in the US and UK?
Co-sponsored by the Department of City and Regional Planning and the Center for Urban and Regional Studies
