The Applied Economics Clinic Seminar Series

In lieu of seminars in Fall 2017, we invite those interested to join our bi-weekly graduate course, Applied Economics Seminar on Environment and Community Equity, where we will be featuring various guest speakers, including economists and other technical practitioners directly involved in current energy issues.

Applied Economics Seminar on Environment and Community Equity is a new seminar in which students will examine current-day issues related to the economics of the environment and its impact on community equity. The module provides graduate students with an opportunity to review and discuss applied economics analysis regarding the energy sector, climate change, and impacts on community well-being. The focus of this module will be on real-world, current economic analysis preformed for advocacy groups and government agencies in relationship to energy, climate, and community equity proposed and enacted policies, and proposed and approved infrastructure projects.
