Business, Ethics and American Healthcare Reform
Thursday, Apr. 24, 5:30–7 p.m.
Boston College, Main Campus, Fulton Hall, Room 511
The Affordable Care Act has the potential to dramatically impact some of the largest industries in the United States and, as a result, has raised deep concerns from members in the business, religious, and political communities.
Proponents of largescale healthcare reform anticipate improvements in social justice, quality of life and economic stability for millions of Americans, while critics predict economic disaster and the oppression of religious believers who reject the law's contraceptive coverage mandate. To make sense of this complex and profoundly important issue, the Boisi Center joins with the schools of law and management to bring together distinguished experts in business, law, ethics and theology for a robust conversation.
Story and History of Chicago’s South Side with Professor Carlo Rotella, director of BC’s American Studies Program and the Lowell Humanities Series
Thursday, May 8, 6:30–8:30 p.m.
Union League Club, 65 West Jackson Blvd., Chicago, Ill.
South Shore, a neighborhood by the lake characterized by neat bungalow blocks, desolate commercial strips, and a persistently high crime rate, has over the years attracted the attention of novelists, playwrights, sociologists, memoirists, entrepreneurs, policy intellectuals, reformers, activists, and other observers of city life. They have found it to be an inspiring but remarkably difficult subject. For the past half-century, ever since its swift turnover from white to black in the 1960s, South Shore has seemed to promise some kind of crucial lesson of wider significance for those who care about the city, and yet that lesson often seems to collapse into cliché or float maddeningly beyond their reach. This talk will consider the problem of South Shore and the surprisingly robust and various literature it has produced.
Estate Planning for Everyone: Beyond the Basics
Wednesday, May 14, 6–9 p.m.
Cadigan Alumni Center, Brighton Campus
Learn how estate planning and the smart use of trusts can help you achieve greater security and peace of mind. This presentation will be a follow-up to last fall’s Estate Planning for Everyone with Boston attorney Michael J. Puzo ’74, JD’77.
Back by popular demand, Mike will review the basics from that session and then focus more specifically on the use of trusts to protect and position assets for today’s longer, more active retirements as well as providing for heirs and other beneficiaries. Attendance at the first session is not required to register.
