During the Ceremony for Honor Graduates at Universidad Francisco Marroquín, Jerry L. Jordan was named honorary professor for his contribution to the implementation of economic and liberal policies, his studies in the monetary and financial sector, and his disseminating the consequences of economic intervention.

He congratulated the honor graduates and shared a few words about the significance of a graduation or commencement that marks the end of the course of studies and the beginning after the knowledge they acquired. He also talked about the growing technological changes in the world and commented on how it has become more prosperous because of capitalism and free markets. Finally, he encouraged graduates to work in their careers knowing that each generation goes further than the generation preceding, and to take advantage of the opportunities they have today.


Jerry L. Jordan is an economist, president of the Pacific Academy…
