Joseph Greenspan graduated from Georgetown University with a Bachelor of Arts in Economics and Philosophy. Within his economics major, Joseph focused heavily on international finance, trade, and global markets. He added a philosophy major in his junior year, during which he concentrated on the history of modern philosophy and the connection between ethics and economics.
