‘Economy — Woes and Recovery’ at Lifelong Learning

We voted for change ... now what?

In his inauguration speech President Obama stated, “Our economy is badly weakened, a consequence of greed and irresponsibility on the part of some but also our collective failure to make hard choices and prepare the nation for a new age.”

At the next Lifelong Learning Lecture on Saturday, May 2, returning guest speaker Ali Sabeti shares his views as to the root causes of our economic woes and the potential path to economic recovery and sustainability.

Sabeti retired as a member of senior staff from the World Bank Group after a career of 25 years in international economic and social development, including over twenty years in China. A Durango resident for 11 years, Ali is active as a volunteer with various organizations and Fort Lewis College.

Then, on May 9, the last of our lectures this spring will feature licensed psychologist Dr. James Kline presenting “Ancient Wisdom: The Psychology of Eastern Religion.”

The Lifelong Learning Lecture series offers a wide variety of topics sure to pique the interest of residents and visitors alike. Its mission is to help you keep your mind agile and your life interesting.

Each presentation is free and open to the public. Lectures take place at the Sisson Library, located at the corner of U.S. 160 and 8th Street, starting at 3 p.m.
