Distinguished Professor Emilia Martinez-Brawley presents: We are once again taking the opportunity to remember Linda Haskell and celebrate her memory as well as Bill's and Rose's, her parents. As many of you remember from last year, Suzanne Haskell Clark and her husband David have continued to take a keen interest in the series and we are pleased to have them with us today. The family's generosity and efforts started this master class series; they continue to offer their help.
Our topic is very timely. We have been talking about ways to help people who are unemployed through no fault of their own for over three years now, ever since the economic crisis pointedly highlighted the various social welfare and economic philosophies that govern such actions. Our recent election cycle brought forth additional discussions, some learned, some purely emotional. Alison Koslowski will today offer a well informed and documented perspective on comparative measures across countries. Are our policies in the U.S. the most generous providers of benefits for families whose breadwinners have lost their jobs? If they are not, where can we look for enlightenment? We know that the current economic and unemployment crisis is global but do we know how different countries make provisions or attempt to solve the quandary?
Alison Koslowski will offer a review of ways in which the countries of the E.U. manage; our respondents, Karen McLaughlin and Paul Burgess, will comment on how we manage in Arizona. I am sure you will all enjoy the presentation and the conversation afterwards. Thank you all for attending.
