The Northeast Labor Symposium for Early Career Economists (NLS-E) brings together researchers based in the Northeastern United States and beyond to discuss cutting edge work on labor markets.

Our goal is to build a closer community among junior faculty working on labor economics topics by exchanging ideas related to ongoing projects. The 2-day virtual workshop will include presentations of working papers/work-in-progress related to the following topics:

  • Inequality (technical change, mobility, race, gender, ethnicity, LGBTQ, labor demand)
  • Wage setting and imperfect competition in labor markets (monopsony, bargaining, unemployment)
  • Labor supply (immigration, labor force participation)
  • Human capital (education, health, child development)
  • Labor market institutions (unions, minimum wages, regulation)
  • Other topics in labor economics (crime, program evaluation, etc.)

The NLS-E is sponsored by Princeton's Industrial Relations Section.  Organizers are:

Lorenzo Lagos - In July 2021, I will join the Brown University as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Economics.

Cody Tuttle - In 2021, I will join the Economics department at UT Austin as an assistant professor.

Attendance is by invitation only.
