HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. — Noted political experts and scholars will discuss the impact of U.S. foreign policy on the pocketbooks of American families during a special event at Hofstra Law School.

“U.S. Foreign Policy and Its Effect on the Domestic Economy,” a panel discussion, will take place on Friday, October 10, from 1 to 3 p.m in Hofstra Law School’s Sidney R. Siben and Walter Siben Moot Courtroom (Room 308) in Hempstead, New York.

The program is sponsored by The Journal of International Business and Law, a scholarly publication of Hofstra Law School and Hofstra University’s Frank G. Zarb School of Business.  The National Security Network is a co-sponsor of the event.

Among other topics, participants will tackle the politics of unilateral steps taken by the U.S. and how the government’s actions overseas have a direct impact on the domestic economy.

Hofstra Law School Professor Daniel J.H. Greenwood will moderate the panel which will include Lea Brilmayer, Thomas Cooley, Karl F. Inderfurth, Dennis Keegan and W. Michael Reisman.
