Dr. Boyce Watkins, a Finance Professor at Syracuse University is planning to speak with Rev.

Dr. Watkins is a Financial expert and prominent Black Speaker, and will also appear with Dr. Julianne Malveaux, President of Bennett College for women, to discuss the plan.  Watkins has written extensively about the Obama economic plan and finding ways to ensure that African Americans can get their piece of the economic pie.

"Obama might be a Black President, but he honestly can't say the word "black" within 100 feet of the White House," says Dr. Watkins, who is authoring a book on African American Wealth Building.  "The truth of the matter is that Black people and poor people must ensure that they get a piece of this pie."

Prominent African American Syracuse Professor on Media Tour discussing Debt Management

Syracuse, NY—January 5, 2009—Prominent Syracuse University Finance Professor Dr. Boyce Watkins, one of the leading Black Financial experts in America, will be doing a television and radio tour promoting his new website and to assist listeners in understanding the importance of smart financial decisions. “America is in a financial mess. It is going to take dramatic action for us to find our way out of the financial gluttony that has crippled millions of households across America,” says Dr. Watkins, who has been a Financial Professor for the past 15 years. “FinancialLipo is my way of contributing to the need for financial fitness in America.”

Financial Lipo is the active process of cutting the fat, building the muscle and going from financial fat to fitness. Dr. Watkins, an expert in Financial Psychology, has created a system that forces Americans to confront their reasons for being “financially overweight”, and learn effective methods for obtaining financial peace, health and prosperity. The site trains visitors to negotiate with their bill collectors to have their debt reduced and to become empowered by the law to get negative items removed from their credit reports.

Dr. Watkins says that “today is the day” that we should all get a firm handle on our finances. By doing this, people will be able to be more competitive during this down economy. Those who subscribe to his website will be empowered with the knowledge to overcome financial obstacles and become financially responsible.
