Economics students speak at WEA meeting
Two UW-Stevens Point economics students spoke at the 2011 Wisconsin Economics Association (WEA) annual meeting, held at the Stevens Point Country Club on Nov. 4-5. The WEA holds its annual conference every fall, bringing together students and economists from academic, government, and private-sector positions.
Senior Devin Christensen (left) presented “On Economic Normativism,” while junior Aaron Konichek (right) addressed attendees with his “On Welfare Programs and Economic Growth” presentation.
“One of the main goals of the conference is to provide a forum for exceptional undergraduate students across the state to present their research,” said Associate Professor of Economics Jason Davis.
The WEA supports undergraduate and graduate student research presentations, research into the teaching of economics at the college and university level, and research examining topics of regional interest.
