In March, she met with guests in Hong Kong, China and presented a talk on “Economist Circumnavigates the Globe: Thoughts on the World Economy.” The group met for dinner afterwards.
In February, Professor Jacobsen gathered with Wesleyan guests for a casual “meet and greet” at a local pub in Sydney, Australia.
