Author Amity Shlaes featured at monthly Statesmanship Forum
New York—The King’s College is honored to welcome author and columnist, Amity Shlaes, to its next Statesmanship Forum, on October 24, 2007, at 12:00 p.m.
Well-known for her thorough analysis of economics, Shlaes is a syndicated columnist for Bloomberg and a senior fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations. She is a former member of the Wall Street Journal editorial board where she served as the op-ed editor and a specialist on economics. Shlaes has written extensively on economics and tax code, and has twice been a finalist for her field’s top honor—the Loeb Prize in commentary.
Shlaes’ latest work, a book entitled, The Forgotten Man: A New History of the Great Depression, chronicles the destructiveness of Franklin D. Roosevelt’s New Deal program. The book is being praised by many, including Republican Presidential hopeful, Rudy Giuliani, who said, “It would be great for everybody to read [The Forgotten Man].”
Dr. Marvin Olasky, Provost of The King’s College and editor of World magazine, will interview Shlaes during the event.
The Statesmanship Forum hosts newsmakers and prominent thinkers who challenge students to think critically about contemporary issues and current events facing society today. It convenes every month through March and hosts an invitational audience of student leaders at the college.
The King's College is a Christian liberal arts college located in the Empire State Building in New York City.
