Capital Market Integration Is Topic of CMN Faculty Lecture on March 19

 

Economic growth and sustainable development in developing countries will be the topic when Professor Mwata Chisha offers a free, public lecture beginning at 12 noon Tuesday, March 19, at the College of Menominee Nation. The program in the mezzanine classroom of the Verna Fowler Academic Library is the second in a series celebrating the 20th anniversary year of the College.

 

The presentation includes a snapshot of how a 15-state consortium in Africa is addressing economic development challenges as it deals with a wide range of capitalization issues including trade barriers, industrialism, foreign investment and stabilizing fluctuations in regional economies.

 

Chisha, who teaches in CMN’s bachelor’s degree program in Public Administration, will discuss research he will be doing that focuses on capital market integration in the 15 developing South African nations. The geographic area in his study ranges between the Democratic Republic of Congo and the United Republic of Tanzania, two centrally-located countries on the African continent, to the southern-most Republic of South Africa, and island states of Madagascar, Mauritius and Seychelles. Since 1980, this vast region has pursued development under the umbrella known as the Southern Africa Development Community (SADC), with goals of sustained economic growth and sustainable development for the member nations.

 

Chisha is a doctoral degree candidate at Northcentral University. He holds a B.S. in agriculture and an M.A. in economics from New Mexico State University.

 

The College’s Faculty Lecture Series continues with noon lectures on campus by Dr. Dennis Vickers on April 23 and Professor Lisa Bosman on May 14. Programs will resume in Fall Semester with talks by Dr. David Overstreet, Professor Eric Jurgens and Professor Ryan Winn. All are free and open to the public.
