Behind the Blue

Some stories require a little more – a little more discussion, more context, more depth and breadth. That’s the idea behind “Behind the Blue” – a weekly podcast created by UK Public Relations and Marketing. It is designed to explore through probing interviews the in-depth the stories that make UK the university for Kentucky and that have impact across the institution, the Commonwealth and, in some cases, the world.

LEXINGTON, Ky. (September 20, 2017) – This week’s guest on Behind the Blue is Dr. Ken Troske. Dr. Troske is the Associate Dean for graduate programs and outreach in the Gatton College of Business and Richard W. and Janis H. Furst Endowed Chair of Economics at the University of Kentucky, as well as a Research Fellow with the Institute for the Study of Labor (IZA) in Bonn, Germany.

Dr. Troske served as a member of the Congressional Oversight Panel whose task was to assess the existing condition of America’s financial markets and the regulatory system, as well as to closely monitor the actions of the Treasury Department and financial institutions to determine if their actions are in the best interest of the American economy.

Dr. Troske joins us this week to discuss current trends in American economics, the impact of government collapses like the ones currently happening in Venezuela and Yemen, how countries fall into and climb out of those types of “death spirals,” and more.
