Jan. 17, 2003 (Lexington, Ky.) -- Five experts from the University of Kentucky Gatton College of Business and Economics will offer their insights on the 2003 economy and issues affecting the economy at the 2003 Economic Roundtable on Wednesday, Feb. 5, at the Radisson Plaza Hotel Lexington.

Donald J. Mullineaux, duPont Endowed Chair in Banking, will share his forecast for the 2003 national economy, while the outlook for Kentucky’s economy will be presented by Eric C. Thompson, acting director of UK’s Center for Business and Economic Research.

Mullineaux, Walter J. Ferrier and Linda S. McDaniel will discuss the likely impact of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, the new law that establishes stronger regulations of the accounting profession. The law was passed in the wake of last year’s spate of major corporate bankruptcies.

Ferrier is the Gatton Endowed Associate Professor of Strategic Management and director of the Gatton College’s Master of Business Administration program. McDaniel is the Von Allmen Endowed Chair of Accountancy.

The program begins at 8:30 a.m., following registration and a continental breakfast. The registration fee is $50.
