Bush vs. Dukakis: Who's Going to Win?

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 19, 1988

What election strategies are the two camps following? How successful have those strategies been? Is the mudslinging working? What are the major economic issues, and where do the candidates stand on them? In terms of economic policies, does it matter who wins?

These and other timely questions are the subject of a Phi Beta Kappa panel discussion among members of the CMC Economics and Government departments. The panel discussion takes place on Wednesday, October 19, at the Athenaeum and kicks off the Athenaeum's series on the election. There will be plenty of time for your questions and views, and audience participation is encouraged. Use this panel discussion to find the key questions for this election-and demand answers to these questions from subsequent participants in other Athenaeum programs on the election.

Professors Fred Balitzer and Jack Pitney from the Government Department will give the low-down on where the campaigns stand. From the Economics Department professors Rod Smith and Tom Willett will give fearless and accurate predictions about what the election means for the economy, and Ross Eckert will moderate this no-holds-barred discussion.
