Seminar's main points
On January 13, 2012, at the CIGS special seminar, Professor Rosengard addressed the audience over his view on the future course of the U.S. economy as he had done at the beginning of last year. Under the title "The Ailing U.S. Economy in 2012: Rehab or Relapse?" Professor Rosengard picked up where he had left off at the time of the last year's seminar, focusing on a prognosis for the U.S. economy in light of the Euro crisis and the upcoming presidential elections. The key question is whether the U.S. economy is on the path of slow and painful recovery ("rehabilitation") or whether we will end up back in the ICU ("relapse") with a double-dip recession.
