Welcome to the Midwest Economics Association

Plan to Join Us at the MEA Annual Conference, March 22-26, 2021


The Midwest Economics Association announces our upcoming 2021 MEA Annual Conference will be conducted virtually given continued uncertainties related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Still, we anticipate nearly 400 research presentations, including sessions organized by the Association of Environmental and Resource Economists (AERE), the Committee for the Status of Women in the Economics Profession (CSWEP), the Society of Labor Economists (SOLE), and the Federal Reserve Economic Database (FRED), among others. Members from all over the US as well as Canada, China, Denmark, Germany, Japan, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, United Arab Emirates, and the United Kingdom will present their research. In addition to distinguished faculty and professionals in the field of economics and business administration, we again have papers from many PhD students as well as special undergraduate sessions.

We hope you will join us!
