‘QE3 only works as a prelude to structural change’: CEME's Arthur Sculley

The institute, which is affiliated with Tufts University, was established in 2007 as the first professional graduate school of international relations in the U.S.

“[Such measures] ease the pain, but they don’t solve the problem,” Sculley said in a recent interview with the Korea JoongAng Daily. “They’re necessary, but by far the more important issue is structural change, which has been needed in the U.S., and in Europe in particular.”

Sculley was visiting the Korean campus of the State University of New York in Songdo, Incheon, to give a lecture.
