The Atlantic Association of Applied Economists (AAAE) encourages you to come and learn from and support three Atlantic economics students as they present their research on a variety of topics.

This annual AAAE event is an important opportunity to help mentor young economists – they benefit greatly from the experience and the feedback we provide – while AAAE members enjoy a free lunch and a chance to think about and discuss a variety of topics.
