Dr. David Krause commented, “It was a delight hosting Peter. His knowledge was both broad and deep. He possessed complete command of current geo-political and economic topics, as well as historical knowledge and context. The students and faculty were fortunate to hear from Dr. DeKeyzer --- it was a great way to end the fall semester.” DeKeyzer's thoughts about the economic outlook of the Europe economy was well received by the students.
