WSJ Michael Casey

Wall Street Journal
editor Michael Casey will be a special guest at an upcoming Skidmore College event on international finance.

The program, titled “The Unintended Consequences of International Finance,” will also feature Skidmore faculty and alumni experts in a panel discussion. Scheduled for Thursday, Oct. 24, in Gannett Auditorium, the program is free and open to the public.

Casey will speak at 4 p.m., followed by a question and answer session. The faculty-alumni panel is scheduled from 5 to 6:30 p.m. A reception will conclude the program.

Ian Tucker, a Skidmore senior and an organizer of the program, said, “This conference on international finance aims to bring to light the consequences of globalization through discussion of real-world insight from numerous participants.”

Gail Dudack '70

Casey is a managing editor and columnist covering global financial markets at Dow Jones and The Wall Street Journal. In a globetrotting career spanning more than 20 years, he has lived and worked as a journalist in Australia, Thailand, Indonesia, Argentina, and the United States. He is a regular commentator and co-host on the WSJ “News Hub” and a frequent guest on Fox Business. He is the author of The Unfair Trade, which has been called “a riveting exposé of the vast global financial system whose flaws are the source of our economic malaise.”

The discussion following Casey’s talk will draw on the expertise of the following members of the Skidmore community:

• Gail Dudack, a 1970 Skidmore graduate who is currently president of the Skidmore Alumni Association and a member of the college’s Board of Trustees. Dudack is managing director of the Dudack Research Group, an independent investment research firm that provides economic, fundamental, quantitative and technical strategy and tools for institutional money managers throughout the US and Europe.
