|The Early-Career Economists’ Panel 2017|
The Atlantic Association of Applied Economists (AAAE) is pleased to present, with financial support from the Canadian Association for Business Economics (CABE):
The Early-Career Economists’ Panel 2017
Please come and support the next generation of economists as you enjoy some free pizza, chat with colleagues, and learn more about: the domestic benefits of investing overseas; how to measure progress in reducing the regulatory burden; the impact policy can have on the health decisions of individuals; and why the introduction and removal of policies may have differential effects.
WHAT: Two regional economists will present some of their research and two new hires in the region will share highlights from their recent Masters’ theses.
