Breakfast program in New Haven to focus on economy
NEW HAVEN — A breakfast program titled “Economic Recovery: For Some, But Not For All,” will be held from 7:30 to 9:30 a.m. May 29 in the community room at Gateway Community College, 20 Church St.
Presented by Christian Community Action of New Haven, the program will feature economist Nicholas S. Perna, managing director of Perna Associates, LLC, visiting lecturer in the Department of Economics at Yale University, economic advisor to Webster Bank and a director of Prudential Bank and Trust, according to a release.
In addition to Gateway, the program is co-sponsored by The Connecticut Chapter of the Counselors of Real Estate and Webster Bank.
Perna will cover the economic outlook for Connecticut and the nation, with respect to jobs, inflation and other financial indicators, the release said. He will relate this to the issues of underemployment, increased income inequality and decreased government support, and attempt to answer the question: What can be done to promote prosperity and address these issues, without damaging our frail economy?, the release said.
The registration fee is $35, or $15 for students with a valid ID from any college or university. All proceeds will benefit CCA’s programs to support families in crisis. Deadline for registration is May 20.
Registration forms are available at www.ccahelping.org or by calling the CCA Development Department at (203) 777-7848 x 19. Parking at the Temple Street Garage will be validated.
