Faculty Contact for 2018-2019 Seminar Series: Nick Ryan
This workshop is designed as a forum for graduate students and faculty with an interest in economic problems of developing countries. Faculty, students, and a limited number of outside speakers will discuss research work in progress. Student participants will be encouraged to develop and present a workshop paper in each term. The scope of topics includes: agricultural and rural development, industrial development, human capital investment, employment, entrepreneurship, risk consequences, incomplete markets, poverty and income distribution, structural transformation and the interaction of international trade and development.
Graduate students who anticipate or are currently doing dissertation research in these or related areas are invited to attend the Workshop, to register for credit as appropriate and to arrange to make a presentation of their prospectus and/or work-in-progress. They should also check out the Development Lunch.
