Louisiana Tech University’s College of Business will host an Economics Roundtable on Thursday, Feb. 7, at 4 p.m. in the Davis Auditorium (College of Business 101). Sponsored by the Center for Economic Education at Louisiana Tech, this free event is open to the public.

Faculty members from the Department of Economics and Finance will discuss and answer questions of economic and social importance pertaining to the U.S. healthcare system. 

The Economics Roundtable is a quarterly gathering to publicly discuss and answer questions about current events of economic and social importance. The topic typically pertains to current events so the discussion is relevant to business decision-making as well as engaging to an informed electorate.

The audience is encouraged to participate by bringing questions for the panel and/or individual speakers to address.
