James Bradfield, the Elias W. Leavenworth Professor of Economics, will present a talk titled "Money, Debt and the Fragility of the Financial Markets” on Wednesday, Oct. 21, at 7:30 p.m. at The Other Side in Utica. This is the second event in the 2009-2010 Imagining America collaboration between Hamilton and The Other Side.

Can it be true that money is debt? Did "greed" cause the financial crisis? Would the U.S. be in a better economic situation if people had lower levels of debt? Would the nation be in a better economic situation if the federal government had a lower level of debt? Bradfield will clarify these questions and some other mysteries of our economic system.

The Other Side is located at 2011 Genesee Street in Utica, across from the Uptown Theater and next to the Cafe Domenico. Plenty of parking is available, and admission is free.
