This famous phrase--coined by Bill Clinton’s campaign strategist, James Carville, in 1992--was first used to call voter attention to incumbent’s George H.W. Bush’s inability to manage the American economy. The phrase has since come to take on a cultural significance, reminding us all of the importance of financial systems in not only determining the outcomes of general elections, but establishing peace and well-being in an economically interdependent world.

The Fall 2009 Fairhaven Lecture Series will look at various aspects of our global, U.S., and local economies, from macro- and micro-economic perspectives, as seen through the eyes of trained economists, historians and political scientists. Join us on Mondays at 3:00pm, won’t you?
