Economic and Financial Experts Will Discuss Jobs, Investments and New Jersey 2011 State Budget at Roundtable in November

(Mahwah) – “How will the election results affect the outlook for jobs, prosperity and the state budget in 2011? What factors should investors focus on to help them invest wisely in the new year?” These subjects will be the focus for a panel roundtable discussion of financial experts taking part in the 2011 Business and Financial Outlook Roundtable on Tuesday, November 30 from 7 – 9 p.m. in the Student Center (SC-136-137) on the campus of Ramapo College of New Jersey. This event is free and open to the public.

The moderator of the roundtable, professor of finance, and founder of the Sabrin Center for Free Enterprise, Dr. Murray Sabrin, once said that “at one time, New Jersey’s economy was one of the most attractive places to conduct business.” Now, in these times of financial struggles, that fact seems to have been diminished. At the Anisfield School of Business’s 2011 roundtable, a highly recognized panel of business experts and commentators will dive into the topics of what issues will affect New Jersyians the most.

The panelists will include Warren Boroson, the author of over 20 books on financial issues; Dwight Carey, the President of the American Productivity Group and the LLC., an engineering and manufacturing company; John Galandak, president of the Commerce and Industry Association of New Jersey; Deborah Howlett, president of New Jersey Policy Perspective and former director of communications for Governor Jon S. Corzine; Paul Mladjenovic, a certified financial planner, author and national speaker; and Paul V. Tyahla, Executive Director of the Common Sense Institute of New Jersey.

Advance registration is encouraged. For information call (201) 684-7373 or email msabrin@ramapo.edu. Driving directions can be obtained by visiting www.ramapo.edu.
