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.
