"Where is the best economics now being done? UMKC."
-- James K. Galbraith
UMKC Economics graduate students Christian Spanberger and Brandon McCoy won the 2014 AFIT student paper competition and will be presenting their papers at the AFIT meetings in April. Christian's paper is "Just Another Form of Market Governance: A grounded theory of cartels" and Brandon's paper is "On Employment: An analysis of the Compatibility between Veblen and the Employer of Last Resort".
"My undergraduate degree in economics helped me land a series of internships, which ultimately led to a position at the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City."
