The Park Place Economist


Knowledge gained from experience is perhaps the most important tool that an investor can equip themselves with. Do you see value in listening to someone that was a past Federal Reserve Bank and Brookings Institution economist; chief economist for the world leader in heavy machinery; director for an industry leading insurance company; student of such familiar names as Shumpeter, Leontief, and Samuelson; and president of a well-respected liberal arts school in Bloomington, IL? I hope you do. I can say with certainty that the 16 individuals in Dr. Robert Eckley's BUS 409 Portfolio Management class are acquiring all the information they can from such an accomplished individual.
