Event Recap

During this intensive summer program, students heard lectures from UChicago price theory faculty and experienced a series of “Chicago-style” seminars where speakers presented their research in progress. Participants also worked on problem sets in workshops and had opportunities to discuss their own work with some of the world’s leading economists. Participating faculty included UChicago economists Kevin Murphy, Steven Levitt, and John List, as well as Jesse Shapiro of Brown University.

Generous support for this program that covers travel, accommodations, and meals for participants was provided by MarrGwen and Stuart Townsend.
