CEA and CDESG 2016

Just returned from the CEA meetings in Ottawa. Great to see everyone from the Canadian Development Economics Study Group (CDESG) as well as some old Wash U friends and some new faces as well!!

If you aren’t already part of the CDESG and you are a Canadian researcher working in areas related to development economics, I’d strongly suggest you check out the group’s website and consider joining!

Great time in Ottawa

Just got back from the 10th Defence and Security Economics Workshop at Carleton University in Ottawa. As always, a number of interesting sessions and a friendly group. Great to have the chance to present my paper Conflict and the Military Expenditure-Growth Link. Appreciate the feedback from everyone!
