The Department of Finance’s Deputy Chair, Professor Jonathan Scott joined The Washington Center’s academic seminar for the Democratic National Convention (DNC) on July 21, 2016 where approximately 150 undergraduate students from around the country participate in a two-week seminar series.
Scott spoke to the students about the many economic policy debates of this year’s monumental presidential election and their importance, as well as the challenges that the next president will face in promoting stability and oversight of financial markets.
“It is important that in this critical election, our young voters, most of whom will be first-time voters, are educated and informed about the economic policies of each party and candidate,” said Scott.
After the lecture, Scott took time to answer questions from the students about finance, financial market and the election cycle. Scott added “I was pleased to see the students so engaged and invested in their futures.”
