Past Presentations

Mr. Gene Bellinger hosted a “Potential Econ SIG Model Repository Demo” in which we brainstormed platforms and processes on how to create and sustain an economics focused repository.

Mr. Al Thibeault presented “WIP: Rare Earth Element Industry Dynamics” in which he explained the problem he plans to model for his dissertation. Below is his work-in-progress model sector map.

    1. David,

      The special interest groups are listed in the dropdown menu under Memberships/SIGs and if you select the top level Membership/SIGs you can see info on all of them. The economics SIG should include work in both micro and macro economics.
