Jeff Rosensweig, Associate Professor of Finance and Director of Goizueta’s Global Perspectives Program, spoke recently at a philanthropic gathering in Jamaica.

A noted world economist, Rosensweig is a regular in the media discussing global finance. He has  also published several books.

Rosensweig spoke at an event hosted by the Women’s Leadership Initiative (WLI) to celebrate philanthropy around the globe and honor key women for their contributions.

More than 300 attended the event with proceeds going to the Voluntary Organization for the Upliftment of Children (VOUCH).

“Speaking on the topic ‘Winning the Global Game,’ Professor Rosenweig, among many things, linked the Jamaican Diaspora to the growth of the local economy, citing that while some may say there is brain drain in the island, it actually has positives as it brings millions worth of foreign exchange through remittances,” writes Latoya Grindley for The Gleaner.

Rosensweig also stressed the importance of education.

Prior to joining Emory in January 1988, Rosensweig was Senior International Economist at the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta. Jeff has also taught at M.I.T. and in the economics department and the School of Management at Yale University.
