Dr. David Abshire to speak at University Club in DC

David_Abshire_seatedOn Tuesday, July 28, 2009, Center President David M. Abshire addressed the current U.S. economic situation in a speech aptly titled, "Heading off the Nations Fiscal Train Wreck." Times are tough. The economic news is not good, and for many families the consequences cannot be overstated: lost jobs, lost homes, lost savings. As President Obama said in his Inaugural Address, we find ourselves "amidst gathering clouds and raging storms."

In his lunchtime speech, Dr. Abshire talked about the methods and solutions to best weather these unprecedented challenges including the looming financial trainwreck currently facing our nation. The event was held at the University Club, 1135 16th Street, NW, with cocktails at 12:00 noon and lunch and the program beginning at 12:30 p.m. The lunch is $40 for University Club members and $45 for non-members.
