Economist Maliha Safri to Talk on Recession and Recovery

Tuesday, February 19 at 12:30
The Impact of the “Great Recession” on American Workers

Economist Maliha Safri will present a talk on “Economic Recession and Recovery” at County College of Morris (CCM) on Tuesday, February 19.

The talk is free and open to the public and takes place from 12:30 to 1:45 p.m. in DeMare Hall, Room 118, on CCM’s Randolph campus, 214 Center Grove Road.

Topics Safri will explore are the controversies within economic theory that have led to confusion about whether an economic recovery has taken place, how the “Great Recession” has resulted in a historic increase in inequality, and the conditions that would generate a real difference for American workers.

The talk is being sponsored by the Department of Anthropology, Sociology and Economics at CCM.

Safri is an assistant professor of economics at Drew University, and has taught and published on political economy in journals such as Signs, Middle East Journal and Rethinking Marxism. She also has edited several book collections and most recently authored “The Economics of Occupation” in The Economist’s Voice. She has been involved with popular education seminars and courses with activists for 12 years and with immigrant worker cooperatives in the New Jersey and New York metropolitan area.

Visitors to the campus wishing to attend this event can park in Lot 7.
