'Adam Smith' looks at Russia, April 18

Economic analyst George Goodman, better known as Adam Smith of the Emmy-Award winning program "Adam Smiths Money World," will speak on "Russia: Threat or Promise?" at 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 18, in Dodds Auditorium, Robertson Hall.

Goodman will present previews of a one-hour "Adam Smith" special that will air later in the spring on WNET, Channel 13. Stephen Kotkin, director of Russian studies at Princeton, Celestine Bohlen, former Moscow bureau chief for The New York Times, and Mark Medish, former senior director of the National Security Council for Russia and Eastern Europe, will join Goodman in a discussion of the program and the issues it raises.

In both the PBS special and the Princeton seminar, Goodman and his guests will address a number of probing questions about Russia's economy, political leadership, media and business climate.

The presentation is sponsored by Princeton's Center of International Studies and Adam Smith Global Television.
