Economic Society attends 2022 Minnesota Economic Association Conference

Economic Society members, Erin Summerbell, Isabel Olson, Ansel Anderson, Jaden Oestern, and Jonas Baune, attended the Minnesota Economic Association Conference on October 14, 2022 at Hamline University in St. Paul, Minnesota. The research conference focused on economic issues related to poverty and discrimination such as rent control programs and gender wage gaps.

Members also visited MSUM Economics alumnus, Rebecca Weir, who is currently a Ph.D. student in the Department of Applied Economics at the University of Minnesota to learn about graduate school opportunities.

This experience was made possible thanks to the generosity of MSUM Economics alumni, Tom and Jackie Edwards.
