Posted on: January 4th, 2013 by admin

On this program, four economists explain the potential fallout from the debt discussions, implementation of the Affordable Care Act and the economy’s bright spots, such as the recovery of the housing market. Frank Hefner of the College of Charleston, Matt Martin of the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond, John Silvia of Wells Fargo and Doug Woodward of the University of South Carolina share their thoughts for 2013.

On this program, our panel of economists recap the recovery of 2012: Frank Hefner of the College of Charleston, Matt Martin of the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond, John Silvia of Wells Fargo and Doug Woodward of the University of South Carolina.

Posted on: August 9th, 2011 by admin

The people behind some of our country’s most widely circulated research rarely receive public credit for their work. RTI International is a research-for-hire non-profit which operates in the Research Triangle under the public radar, yet employs 2500 people and generates more than $700 million in annual revenue. RTI President & CEO Dr. Victoria Haynes shares her thoughts on using research to influence public policy decisions and preparing her company for a future with fewer government contracts. Participating in the dialogue are Jim Roberts of the Center of Innovation for NanoBiotechnology and Frank Hefner of the College of Charleston.
