"The current economic crisis makes this Presidential election more critical than ever before," says Dr. Syed Ahmed, Director of the Business Research Center and Professor of Economics. "It is crucial that citizens understand the economic proposals of each of the candidates before heading to the polls. We are pleased to present representatives from the Democratic and Republican parties for what will surely be an interesting and informational discussion."
