‘Economics Bites on the Go’ features Dr. Brock Stoddard today

The next “Economics Bites on the Go” will take place noon-1 p.m. today, Oct. 1 via Zoom. The episode will feature behavioral economist Dr. Brock Stoddard who will discuss “The Effect of Short-Term Users in a Common-Pool Resource Environment.”

“Economics Bites on the Go”  was created by Wichita State’s Department of Economics and the Institute for the Study of Economic Growth. The aim is to provide students and faculty members an opportunity to interact with top-tier economists.

Each talk lasts one hour. For the first 20 minutes, Siyu Wang, WSU Economics Department assistant professor, asks students questions that provoke the guest speakers into a deeper examination of their work and how they see the world. The guest speaker then has 20 minutes to summarize their life-long research. The last 20 minutes is Q&A time, with students and professors interacting with the guest speaker and asking any questions they have in mind.

Stoddard graduated from Indiana University in 2013. He worked at the University of South Dakota for four years before moving to Appalachian State University in 2017. He received tenure and promotion in 2020 and is now an associate professor of economics.

The Zoom meeting ID is 379-883-4810 and the passcode is 200.
