UW Tacoma’s Division of Politics, Philosophy, and Public Affairs (PPPA) has started a new blog, 253 Economics, that features students’ voices on contemporary issues and debates within economics, including those occurring here in the 253 area code. The purpose of 253 Economics is to show how economic reasoning applies to real world issues, and to do so in non-technical language that a general audience can understand. Sample topics include economics of education, health, immigration, labor, trade, and urban policies. The blog is a collaborative effort among economics faculty and students, and gives students an opportunity to share insights gained through their coursework and experience.
253 Economics is managed by UWT’s economics faculty and edited by Seyed Karimi (firstname.lastname@example.org). Bookmark blogs.uw.edu/econ253/ for easy access to new posts!
