Academic Advising
“The prudent man always studies seriously and earnestly to understand whatever he professes to understand, and not merely to persuade other people that he understands it; and though his talents may not always be very brilliant, they are always perfectly genuine.” – Adam Smith, Theory of Moral Sentiments
“The ideas of economists and economic philosophers, both when they are right and wrong, are more powerful than is commonly understood. Indeed the world is ruled by little else. Practical men, who believe themselves to be exempt from any intellectual influences, are usually the slaves of some defunct economist.” - John Maynard Keynes.

About the Oregon Economic Forum

The Oregon Economic Forum is a series of initiatives presented by the UO College of Arts and Sciences and its Department of Economics. With the state continuing to face significant economic challenges, the Oregon Economic Forum adds a new voice to the ongoing political and business economic dialogue and affords business, finance, government, and university leaders the opportunity to explore relevant economic issues together. In addition to an annual conferences in Portland, the Forum produces the University of Oregon Statewide Economic Indicatort, Regional Economic Indicators, and the Central Oregon Business Index. The Forum Director, Tim Duy, also engages the community directly via presentations throughout the state and media contact. For more information about the Oregon Economic Forum, please contact Tim.
