    • Students in the Department of Economics change the shape of the world economy using historical context and an interdisciplinary lens. Working alongside esteemed faculty and other graduate programs, students use rigorous conceptual, mathematical, and statistical modeling techniques that form the methodological basis of contemporary economic thought. Recently, their respected and inventive work has covered topics such as:

      • Economics during the interwar period
      • Equilibrium approach to financial modeling
      • Political economy of cooperation and coordination
      • Islamic finance
      • The role of race and ethnicity in occupational hierarchies
      • Interindustry structure of technology and demand
