The Applied Economics Working Group meets weekly during the school year to hear presentations by faculty and graduate students. Researchers present their latest work, as well as "works-still-in-progress." This leads to lively and interesting discussions!

Please send any questions about these sessions or presentation inquiries to the working group coordinator, Steven Dundas.
