This particular project emerged after a meeting of John Gorlorwulu and Jonathan Warner at the Free Market Forum held in September 2007. At the time, Warner served as a professor of economics at Dordt College in Sioux City, Iowa, and Gorlorwulu was an assistant professor of economics at George Fox University in Newberg, Oregon. As Warner presented a paper on currency substitution in Europe, Gorlorwulu made the connection between the issues Warner mentioned and the current economic situation in postwar Liberia. Warner and Gorlorwulu entered into discussions after the presentation and determined that to fully examine the issues in Liberia and consider possible financial solutions would require additional study and resources.
John Gorlorwulu, PhD: studied regional and development economics at Cornell University; worked as a policy economist for the State of Oregon and logistician for UNDP in Liberia. Teaches economics at George Fox University in Oregon and conducts research in regional economic development and postwar economic reconstruction.
