Our first issue was released online during the summer of 2015. Here, we showcase some of the finest work done by Penn undergraduates in recent years, hence the nickname. Submissions were drawn from former winners of Penn’s’ annual Lawrence R. Klein Prize for Outstanding Research in Economics, recommendations by Prof. Kenneth I. Wolpin, and a call for papers issued by the UES in 2012.
