Letters 8 – 17 – 2011

Correction:  

In the August 12 edition of TNR, the article “Shumlin talks about UVM, Vermont Yankee and Taxes” stated that Frank Cioffi ignored letters of complaint about outgoing President Dan Fogel’s retirement package. It should have read “Robert Cioffi,” who is Chair of the Board of Trustees at UVM. Frank Cioffi is also on the Board, but Robert is the one ignoring letters. We apologize for the error.

Don’t miss economist David Hale speak at the Sheraton Economic Series

Monday August 29, 2011

Sheraton Burlington – University Amphitheatre

Social (half) hour at 6:30, Program at 7:00

Vermont-born global economist David Hale will appear on the EAI platform for the seventh time on Monday, August 29, at 7:00 pm in the University Amphitheatre at the Sheraton Burlington Conference Center.

David and his wife Lyric are the editors of a just released book, What’s Next? Unconventional Wisdom on the Future of the World Economy (Yale University Press).

In this unique book, more than twenty leading economists and experts offer rigorously researched prognoses for the world’s major economies over the next five years. Factoring in such varied issues as the price of oil, the strength of the U.S. dollar, geopolitics, tax policies, and new developments in investment decision making, the contributors ground their predictions in the realities of current events, political conditions, and the health of financial institutions in each national economy.

David and Lyric will summarize the highlights of What’s Next? as part of the Ethan Allen Institute’s Sheraton Economic Series. The public is invited – reservations not required.
