In his new podcast series titled, The Future of Financing Freedom, Dr. David Axelrod, Instructional Specialist in the Department of Economics at the Feliciano School of Business at Montclair State University, considers the relationships between the concepts of finance, future and freedom in addition to presenting policy proposals based on these insights.
