Dartmouth in the News

  • "The response to the gravest financial crisis in generations has been engineered to a remarkable degree by a committee of three," including Treasury Secretary Henry M. Paulson Jr. '68 and Timothy F. Geithner '83, the president of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. The third person singled out is Federal Reserve Chairman Ben S. Bernanke. The story was titled "In a Crucible of Crisis" (Washington Post, Sept. 19).
  • "Georgia needs an independent, 9/11-style commission," Kenneth Yalowitz, director of the Dickey Center for International Understanding, recommended in an op-ed titled "What the West Wants" (International Herald Tribune, Sept. 14). "To rebuild Western confidence," Yalowitz and his co-authors argued, Georgia "should foster an open and critical dialogue with the people of Georgia and their elected representatives."
  • Americans have little to fear when it comes to energy security, argued Daryl G. Press, associate professor of government. In the op-ed, "All the Oil We Need" (International Herald Tribune, Aug. 21), Press and his co-author wrote, "there are robust stockpiles of oil around the globe that could see us through any foreseeable calamities on the world market."
  • "One in three American Indian women will be raped in their lifetimes," according to N. Bruce Duthu '80, professor of Native American studies. In the op-ed "Broken Justice in Indian Country" (The New York Times, Aug. 18), Duthu wrote, "Congress should step in and clearly establish the authority of Indian tribes to investigate and prosecute all crimes occurring on Indian lands."
