On Friday morning, May 7, Professor Moyara Ruehsen of the Institute’s Graduate School of International Policy and Management was interviewed by KSBW news anchor Dale Julin during an extended segment focusing on the global economic situation. Professor Ruehsen holds a Ph.D. in international economics from Johns Hopkins University and teaches courses on international trade and finance, anti-money laundering and counter-terrorist financing policies.
