Speaker You Need to Hear: Local Economist and Author to talk about Localism and Globalism

Economist and author Michael Shuman will be speaking in Tucson on February 2nd. Shuman is a leader in local economies and brings a new perspective to the relationship between globalization and localization.

As you know, local business and what it can do for the community is an incredibly timely topic here in Arizona, where we have a dire need to revitalize our local economy. Shuman will offer valuable insights as well as information to inspire and encourage the local movement right here in Tucson.

This is a free event you want to attend. Tuesday, Feb 2. 6:30 PM, University of Arizona Student Union–Santa Rita Room.
