BOZEMAN -- A recent member of President Bush's Council of Economic Advisers will speak about high-profile accounting scandals and government reform in the second Montana State University College of Letters and Science's Landscapes of the Mind lecture series scheduled for 4 p.m. Friday, Feb. 25 at the MSU Foundation Building, 1501 S. 11th Ave.

Randall Kroszner is a professor at the University of Chicago and was a member of the President's Council of Economic Advisers. As a member of the council, Kroszner helped craft public policy responses to high-profile accounting scandals, such as Enron, Tyco and WorldCom. He will provide an inside view of how changes to information disclosure laws evolved, how their implementation impacts U.S. financial markets and economic performance and how future paths of reform are likely to develop.

The lecture is sponsored by the MSU College of Letters and Science, the Department of Agricultural Economics and the M.L. Wilson Endowment Seminar Fund. It is free and open to the public. A reception will follow.
