Students who are currently taking Econometrics (Economics 318) will be available to discuss their projects. This is not a series of student presentations. Rather, each of the seven groups of students has prepared a poster which summarizes their model and the results of their project.
You can wander around, have a few refreshments, and ask students to explain their results to you in plain English. Listed below are the topics of the studies.
