Dr. Brown's new book named to core academic list
Dr. Christopher Brown, Economics at Arkansas State University, has been selected by Yankee Book Peddler (YBP) Library Services and online magazine Academia forDr. Christopher Brown inclusion on the list of core academic books for 2008. Brown’s book, entitled “Inequality, Consumer Credit, and the Saving Puzzle” (Cheltenham, U.K.: Edward Elgar, 2008, 200 pages), presents a vision of an economy relying on consumer credit for growth. Brown’s book investigates the importance of recent financial innovations, such as the securing of consumer loans and subprime lending, in increasing the borrowing power of households at all income levels, and it analyzes the tradeoffs and risks associated with consumer credit dependence.

Dr. Dockter, Dr. Buchanan, students go to Research Day
Dr. Michael Dockter, associate vice chancellor for Research and Technology Transfer, and Dr. Roger Buchanan, Zoology, recently escorted a group of ASU students to Little Rock to participate in the Research Day at the Capitol. The students include Marisa Wawryzniak, Lindsey Beall-Clark, Brielan Smiechowski, Alejandra Ratti, K.C. Blackwood, and Shea Harris. The event, organized by the Arkansas Science and Technology Authority, was held in the Rotunda at the Capitol Building. It promoted the idea that investing in university research and Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematic (STEM) initiatives produce benefits for Arkansas’ economy. Students and researchers had an opportunity to share poster displays and visit with the state legislators about research on respective campuses. This interaction provided legislators with information on the long-term return on investment the state of Arkansas will gain through support of university research and development and STEM programs.
