HPU Associate Dean Gives Talk About Recession To Rotary Club Of High Point

Posted on October 19, 2009.

HIGH POINT, N.C., Oct. 19, 2009 – Dr. Stephanie Crofton, associate dean in the Earl N. Phillips School of Business, recently gave a talk, titled “The Great Recession and What the Future Holds,” for the Rotary Club of High Point.
 
In her presentation, Crofton compared the ongoing recession and previous ones to assess the likely speed and strength of the coming recovery. She discussed the earliest signs of improvement in financial markets and the broader economy. She also highlighted the roles of recoveries abroad and of the Federal Reserve, and analyzed the debates about the likelihood of protracted deflation or inflation in the years ahead.
 
“Issues of financial and economic stability today are particularly important not just for Rotary Club members, but also for everyone in our community,” Crofton says. “We have all witnessed how crises affect our sense of personal, financial and employment security.”
