\"In Defense of Wall Street\"Today, many might agree with the second President of the United States, John Adams, who argued that \"...banks have done more harm to the morality, tranquility, and even wealth of this nation than they have done or ever will do good.\" In this talk, Prof. Levine takes a step back from recent--and past--rhetoric and evaluates the evidence on the importance of the financial system for expanding economic opportunities, alleviating poverty, fostering entrepreneurship, and improving living standards.Ross Levine is the Willis H. Booth Chair in Banking and Finance, Haas School of Business, University of California at Berkeley

Holocaust Survivor Talk at Swarthmore College: David Tuck Tells His Story
11/04/2014
4:15 PM
6:00 PM
All are welcome to hear David Tuck tell his story about surviving the Holocaust.

David was born in Poland in 1929. Life drastically changed on September 1, 1939 when Germany invaded Poland. David and his family were deported to the Lodz ghetto, and then David was sent to Posen, a labor camp in Poland; after Posen, David was sent to Auschwitz, where he worked in a sub-camp building anti-aircraft guns, and eventually to Güsen II, an underground factory to build German aircraft.

On May 5, 1945 the Americans liberated Güsen II; David weighed 78 pounds. David then spent the next several months recuperating in refugee camps and then immigrated to the United States in 1950, where he has lectured widely about his experience as a Holocaust survivor.

A reception will follow.
