Huntington to host Visiting Executive Seminar

Huntington, Ind.—Huntington University will host a Visiting Executive Seminar on March 28 at 8:45 a.m. in the Habecker Dining Commons.

The seminar brings together business leaders and Huntington University business students to discuss important issues in today’s business world. Led by Jim O’Donnell, associate professor of business and executive-in-residence, and Dr. G. Blair Dowden, president of the university, this seminar will focus on the subprime lending crisis.

Attendees will examine two articles with differing viewpoints. The first article, from the Jan. 27 edition of The New York Times, explains why author Jim Grant believes the world, at least as Americans know it, is about to end. The article is titled “Paying the Price for the Fed’s Success.”

Dr. G. Blair Dowden
The second piece, from the Jan. 28 edition of The Wall Street Journal, was written by Brian Wesbury, and, as its title promises, he shares why he believes “The Economy is Fine (Really).”

Attendees are invited to stay for a lunch and fellowship time following the program. Attendance is free and open to the public, but reservations are required. To RSVP by March 20, contact Melissa Cole at or (260) 359-4069.
