Salvador Espinosa, an assistant professor at San Diego State University's School of Public Affairs, will discuss a proposal to create a bi-national mechanism of bond financing for strategic border infrastructure between Mexico and the United States.

Espinosa's lecture, "On Cross-Border Bond Markets and Strategic Infrastructure Development: A Different Way to Look at Regulatory Harmonization," is scheduled from 4-5:15 p.m., Monday, Nov. 7, in Science Hall, Room 107.

"There is no doubt that globalization has changed the way we think of finance and economics around the world. We're seeing that on a daily basis right now, but this is particularly true when the globalization is in our backyard in the form of an international border," said Monica Torres, an associate professor and head of the Department of English at NMSU.

Espinosa holds a Master and Ph.D. in public affairs from Indiana University and a bachelor's in economics from Univerisdad Panamericana, Mexico. He specializes in fiscal decentralization, public financial administration and regional development.

The lectures are free and open to the public. For more information, contact Monica Torres at 575-646-2319. A parking permit for off-campus visitors may be obtained at https://corridor.nmsu.edu/auxadmin/ParkingForms/epermit.aspx.

The final talk in the series, "Critical Regionalism and Studies of the Southwest," is scheduled for Nov. 14.

The Fall 2011 Colloquium Series is sponsored by the NMSU Southwest and Border Cultures Institute.
