Research Workshops Applied Economics Workshop
In this workshop, new applied economics research and applied economics research papers, as well as related topics, are presented by Booth faculty and PhD students, as well as by invited speakers.
In accordance with university guidance, and out of concern for our community and guest speakers, we will continue hosting our Winter Spring 2021 speaker series virtually.
The health and well-being of the UChicago community and our guests is our top priority, and we appreciate your understanding as we take steps to minimize the risk to the university community. We will post updated information to this page as it becomes available. Please note that the Zoom links for each week will be sent out via the listserv. See below for further information.
Please contact Andres Villatoro, workshop administrator, if you would like to be added to the listserv for weekly updates with Zoom Links.
When possible, links to the workshop papers are posted to this page for printing. Occasionally, speakers opt not to circulate their papers. Therefore, the link will be unavailable.
