W&L's Smitka Cited in Christian Science Monitor
Michael Smitka, professor of economics at Washington and Lee, is quoted in the April 4 edition of the Christian Science Monitor in a story titled “What would a Korean war cost? Gauging the economic turmoil.”
Smitka, who specializes in the economies of Japan and China as well as the auto industry, said a conflict with North Korea could result in major disruptions that would have far-reaching impact on the U.S. economy.
“…the fallout in any disruption for the rest of Asia would be quite large,” he said.
