The Young Economists' Convention Series

The Young Economists’ Convention Series is dedicated towards providing learning opportunities for the youth.  As we bridge established and emerging leaders of today to representatives from public institutions, private companies, social enterprises, and the academe, it serves as an avenue to start meaningful discussions about the world’s most pressing issues.
