As the global health situation involving the Coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to evolve, the Becker Friedman Institute, with guidance from the University of Chicago’s Office of the Provost, has decided that the best course of action is to cancel Becker Applied Economics Workshops for the remainder of the academic year. We recognize that this decision comes at a cost in terms of foregone opportunities to discuss research and engage in productive academic conversations, but the public health risks raised by the coronavirus outbreak and the safety of our visitors and staff are our top priority.
This workshop focuses on the application of core economic tools to address questions that are of interest to researchers and policymakers alike. It meets weekly on Mondays from 3:30 to 5 p.m., in Saieh Hall Room 146.
