A Talk by Financial Journalist and Editor Carol Loomis

Carol Loomis inaugurates the John J. Curran '75 Lectures in Journalism Series, introduced by Wyatt Mason.

The venerated financial journalist Carol Loomis is the former senior editor-at-large of Fortune Magazine, and the coiner of the term "hedge fund." The editor of Warren Buffett's annual shareholder letter, she has been recognized by the New York Times for her success in battling gender stereotypes within the financial-services industry, having started her career in the 1950s as one of only two female reporters at Fortune. The Reformed Broker calls Loomis "a lion of financial journalism," while ValueWalk celebrates her as, "without doubt, the greatest business writer of all time."

John J. Curran '75 Lectures in Journalism honors the memory of a proud Bardian whose dedication to ethical reporting in journalism informed a trusting readership for over a quarter of a century and promoted a culture of honesty, integrity, and truth.

How Does Trade Liberalization Affect Racial and Gender Inequality in Employment? Evidence from Post-Apartheid South Africa

Bilge Erten will present a paper she co-authored with Fiona Tregenna, entitled, “How Does Trade Liberalization Affect Racial and Gender Inequality in Employment? Evidence from Post-Apartheid South Africa.” Bilge will discuss how rapid trade liberalization can hurt disadvantaged groups, with findings based on a study of the effects of liberalization on the racial and gender composition of employment in South Africa in the mid-1990s, which found that African and female workers were particularly affected, and that districts that were exposed to a higher loss of protection experienced larger employment losses than comparable districts. The effects of liberalization on local employment are identified by exploiting the variation in tariffs across industries and in industrial composition across regions.
