Economy in Crisis

It almost seems like a perfect storm — rising oil prices, massive failures on Wall Street, high unemployment, and a deeply divided Congress. No doubt about it, times are tough. Now more than ever it’s important that we understand the complexities of our economic situation.

This month’s programs from UC Berkeley’s Goldman School of Public Policy, UC Davis Chancellor’s Colloquium and UCSB do just that with prominent guest speakers and renowned faculty sharing their perspectives on this most tumultuous time.

Piecing Together the Autism Puzzle

In 1998, six visionary families– five who have sons with autism– helped found the UC Davis M.I.N.D. Institute (Medical Investigation of Neurodevelopmental Disorders), a collaborative international research center committed to the awareness, understanding, prevention, care, and cure of neurodevelopmental disorders. Since 2004, they’ve shared the latest medical, educational and social research with UCTV’s audience, including this latest batch of programs.
