The conference took place at Colby College; more than 40 economists from across the state gathered to learn about the latest economic research, and establish and renew collaborations with other Maine scholars. The conference also included a poster session featuring research by students from Bowdoin, Bates, Colby, and the University of Maine.
The conference was organized by faculty from all four schools. Three faculty members from SOE presented their latest research and four SOE graduate students presented poster sessions:

Sandra Goff: “Do Dollars Degrade Sustainability Norms? An Experiment to Assess the Effect of Economic Valuation Information on Pro-Environmental Behavior”
