The aim is to provide students and faculty members an opportunity to interact with top-tier economists.

Each talk lasts one hour. For the first 20 minutes, Siyu Wang, WSU Economics Department assistant professor, asks students questions that provoke the guest speakers into a deeper examination of their work and how they see the world. The guest speaker then has 20 minutes to summarize their life-long research. The last 20 minutes is Q&A time, with students and professors interacting with the guest speaker and asking any questions they have in mind.

The Zoom meeting ID is 919 8769 9546  and the passcode is 200.
