Hello Interns,

I will have four presentations on Friday.  Two are on Civil Society and two are on Macroeconomics.  

Civil Society - is seen as a panacea for most social problems including unemployment, drug addiction, suicide, depression, crime, domestic abuse, loneliness, low voter turnout, among other social ills.  Policies promoting civil society were embraced in the nineties by both Democrats and Republicans.  Come and learn about civil society while simultaneously participating in civil society.  

Macroeconomics I - Learn about the very basics of economic policy.  We will explore the Business Cycle/s, Fiscal Policy, Monetary Policy, Keynesian Economics, Supply-Side Economics, the Philips Curve, among other economic ideas.   

You will receive extra credit for attending each presentation and the time spent during presentations and workshops can be included as legislative duties on your timesheet.   

The times are as follows:

11:00 to 12:00 - Civil Society

12:00 to 1:00 - Civil Society

1:00 to 2:00 - Macroeconomics I

3:00 to 4:00 - Macroeconomics I
