Associate Professor Robert Beekman and Assistant Professor Abigail Hall Blanco pose with Adam Smith Society students outside of the Cato Institute. Adam Smith Society students travelled to Washington, D.C., to meet economists working in various areas of policy, government and the private sector. As part of that visit, they stopped at the Mercatus Center at George Mason University which offers a number of program opportunities for graduate students in economics and other disciplines and engages in research in a variety of policy areas.
The Adam Smith Society is a faculty mentored, Sykes College of Business honors society for students of economics and economic policy. Students demonstrating an outstanding interest and competence in the economic way of thinking are nominated by faculty for membership in the society.
The society exposes students to what economists do in the real world, introducing them to different points of view through enriched interaction with professional economists and community leaders who share an interest in real world economics.
The Adam Smith Breakfast is a must for local business community members operating in a global economy. The presentation includes an update on the Tampa Bay economy by Associate Professor John Stinespring, Ph.D., and a global macroeconomic outlook by Associate Professor Vivekanand Jayakumar, Ph.D. Ample time for questions and answers will follow the presentations. Proceeds from the breakfast will support The Adam Smith Society, the honor society of the Department of Economics.
