This Year's Conference

 

CALL FOR PAPERS

The 83rd Annual Meeting of the Midwest Economics Association will be held March 15-17, 2019, at the Hyatt Regency St. Louis at the Arch in St. Louis, Missouri.

This year's speakers are Dr. Kerwin Charles, president of the Midwest Economics Association and Edwin A. and Betty L. Berman Distinguished Service Professor and former interim Dean, University of Chicago Harris School of Public Policy, and the distinguished C. Woody Thompson Lecturer, Dr. William Evans, Keough-Hesburgh Professor and Department Chair, University of Notre Dame.

St. Louis is a major city in Missouri along the Mississippi River. Its iconic, 630-ft. Gateway Arch, built in the 1960s, honors the early 19th-century explorations of Lewis and Clark and America's westward expansion in general. Replica paddlewheelers ply the river, offering views of the arch.

The history of St. Louis has been heavily influenced by Westward expansion and blues music. The big "must-see" in this region is the Gateway Arch, while other important sites include the Museum of Westward Expansion, the St. Louis Cathedral and the Anheuser-Busch factory tour. The city offers plenty for the whole family. Children will enjoy the local zoo and the Magic House, while family members will also want to unwind at Forest Park, home to the World's Fair almost a century ago.
