Husson University will be celebrating students and faculty members’ contributions to the scientific and clinical research community’s growing body of knowledge during its Eighth Annual Research and Scholarship Day on Thursday, April 20, 2017 in the Gracie Theatre and the adjacent Darling Atrium. During the event, undergraduates, graduate students, and faculty members from all of the university’s colleges and schools will share the results of their many capstone research projects, graduate theses and other activities devoted to understanding our world.
This year’s plenary speaker is the Dr. Phil Grant Professor of Management & Economics, at Husson University’s College of Business, Steven R. Cunningham, Ph.D.
“Perhaps the dominant element driving large, developed, industrial economies is the way the public forms its perceptions of the state of the economy and financial markets,” says Cunningham. “The flow of information and the way people process that information governs their economic decisions, like those regarding employment, purchases, and standards of living.”
Cunningham’s presentation will focus on his research in the role of perceptions and expectations in our economy. The presentation will culminate in a discussion about Cunningham’s latest paper on the “Everyday Price Index” and the way the public forms its ideas about prices and inflation.
