Five Tuesdays • 10:15 a.m. - 11:45 a.m. • Mackey Auditorium & Zoom

January 24 • February 7, 21 • March 7, (28 no class) • April 11


This multimedia course goes behind the headlines of consumer and financial news. Each class focuses on “anchor” topics and a quick review of recent personal finance, economic, and business news from such leading publications as The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, The Economist, Consumer Reports, and regional and local periodicals.


Participants are encouraged to bring up topics they wish to explore. With so many retirement nest eggs dependent on financial markets or threatened by runaway inflation, “Money News” provides participants with insights and vital discussion on issues affecting their consumer choices and personal economic security.
