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 some lively and interesting discussions!

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

Schedule for Winter 2019 - All sessions meet in Ballard 200C (will move to Ballard 219 when this new conference room is ready - check back for updates)
