On Wednesday, October 12th, the Ball State Economics Club hosted radio host, lawyer, and political commentator Abdul Hakim-Shabazz at its weekly meeting. Dr. Bohanon, Econ Club President Jorge Flores, and Econ Club Vice-President Maggie Tillotson conducted a panel interview with questions on Indiana and national economics. Abdul Hakim Shabazz shared his insights on a diverse array of topics. Some of the topics he focused on included that the minimum wage should not be raised to $15 an hour, as it is an arbitrary number and that most American manufacturing jobs have been lost to automation rather than shipped overseas. After the meeting, the club took Abdul to Greek’s Pizzeria to continue the discussion.
