Alumna to speak on International Monetary Fund

Laure Redifer, assistant to the U.S. director of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), will speak on "The 21st Century IMF: Global Challenges and Opportunities" at 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, March 21, in 113 Laws Hall.

Redifer, who earned a master’s in economics at Miami in 1988, is "at the forefront of the ongoing, heated debate about the IMF’s role in developing and emerging market economies," said Prosper Raynold, director of graduate studies in economics.

Redifer spent most of the 1990s at the U.S. Treasury Department, receiving four of the department’s special service awards for her contributions to policy on the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), the European Monetary Union, the Asian financial crisis and the Korean banking crisis.

"My analytical skills were sharpened considerably and laid the foundation for what I was able to achieve thereafter," said Redifer of her studies at Miami.

Redifer’s talk is part of the Graduate Alumni Lecture Series. It is organized by the master’s program in economics and is sponsored by the Graduate School and the Dolibois Faculty Development Fund.

The talk is free and open to the public. For more information, call 9-2836 or e-mail
