How the Middle Class Survives*
(*and how one academic gained new insights)

Wednesday, October 23rd
4:15pm - Reception
4:30pm - Talk and Discussion
Lutnick Library Room 200, Haverford College

What do an undocumented immigrant in the South Bronx, a high-net-worth entrepreneur, and a twenty-something graduate student have in common? All three are victims of our dysfunctional mainstream bank and credit system.

Professor Servon will discuss her book and findings before engaging with CPGC Executive Director Eric Hartman about the ways in which her scholarship features community-based knowledge generation and deliberate public dissemination as key steps in the research process.

Co-sponsored by the Haverford College Microfinance and Impact Investing Initiative and The Center for Peace and Global Citizenship.
