Applied Economics Working Group Sessions

The Applied Economics Working Group meets 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!

All Fall 2023 sessions are also available via Zoom.

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