LEWISBURG, Pa. – A special academic discussion of the nation’s continuing financial crisis Thursday drew a standing-room crowd of Bucknell University students, faculty and staff.

The discussion, held in the Forum of the Elaine Langone Center, was led by professors from the College of Arts and Sciences, specializing in economics, political science and management.

The panelists were:

  • William Gruver, distinguished clinical professor of management and executive-in-residence
  • Gregory Krohn, associate professor of economics
  • Scott Meinke, associate professor of political science

Every square inch of the Forum was filled. Dozens of students occupied the floor space in front of the panelists and more crammed the entrance doorways as the panel led a discussion that analyzed the current situation from several intellectual perspectives and considered the economic and political implications of the crisis.

In addition, the panelists responded to audience questions regarding the complex and dynamic situation.
