The forum titled Reggaenomics 101–The Economics of Reggae Music takes place at 310 Bowery (between Bleeker and Houston Streets) from 6:30pm to 10:00pm and will be moderated by Sharon Gordon, chairperson of CPR. On the panel will be academic, Professor Loris Crawford of Monroe College, journalist, Patricia Meschino, of Billboard Biz, and business women Patrice Barnes, artist manager and president of Patrice Concepts and Michelle Athurton, president of E2 Records. The forum will examine the economic capacity of the reggae music industry as well as the economic contribution of the industry to Jamaica.  London based, Kennedy Mensah who specializes in artist royalties will also participate in the forum via SKYPE as a commentator. 
Panelists and commentators will take questions from the audience in what promises to be a far reaching discussion of the economics of reggae music.
CPR strives to increase understanding of Reggae’s development, its significance to the social, economic and political development of Jamaica and its influence around the world. Its mission is to raise the bar in the creation, development, promotion and presentation of reggae; to elevate the profile of its purveyors and to research, codify, curate and disseminate information about the genre.
