The University of Hartford and its College of Arts and Sciences is presenting the annual Deeds Symposium, which will be a talk by Peter Schiff who is president and chief global strategist of Euro Pacific Capital. His topics for the talk will include “Policy Mistakes during the Great Recession” and “How and Where to Invest in the Current Economic Climate.”

Shiff, who was a candidate for the Republican Party’s nomination for U.S. Senate in 2010, was recognized internationally for accurately predicting the collapse of the housing and credit markets, the subprime crisis, and the increasing price of gold relative to the U.S. dollar. Schiff delivers lectures at major economic and investment conferences around the country and the world.

The symposium, being held on Wednesday, April 6, at 7:30 p.m., in Millard Auditorium, is free and open to the public but tickets are required. Call the University box office at 860.768.4228 or 1.800.274.8587 for tickets.

This lecture will take an alternate, imaginative approach to finance. Shiff has extensive knowledge in the field of finance, currency and gold markets in addition to foreign securities markets.

His firm, Euro Pacific Capital, is a full-service, registered broker/dealer specializing in foreign markets and securities which was founded in 1997.

The Deeds Symposium was created in 1982 at the University of Hartford to provide a forum for the discussion of free-market principles. Program speakers are internationally known participants in the continuing discussion of free enterprise and government.
