Joseph DaBoll-Lavoie, Ph.D.
The Nazareth College Economics Program is a thoughtful analysis of market forces and their effect on daily life, public policy, and our success or failure as a society. Rooted in a liberal arts perspective, this approach helps students prepare for graduate study in finance, business, law, and related disciplines, as well as for careers in a variety of fields.
Trickledown or supply-side. Marx or Milton Friedman. The tension between socialism and capitalism. In our program, economics is anything but dull. We look at the economic forces that shaped history and investigate present-day topics such as the challenges of a global marketplace, the psychology of the stock market, and the monetary systems in which we live. As they explore economic models and argue the relative merits of Keynes and Krugman, our students acquire a foundation for wisdom and leadership in a global economy.
