Welcome to Research First, the online journal of student work in the School of Economics at the University of Nottingham.
Students in the School of Economics consistently produce very good quality work in the form of coursework essays, research work and policy articles, for example, for the Nottingham Economic Review.
Below are excellent examples of some of the good work produced by our students. The authors agreed for their work to be made available as examples of good practice.
- Conflict Intensity on Socioeconomic Welfare: A Ugandan Case Study, MSc Economic and Development Economics, 2012.
- Do people respond to pure intentions?, Tom Lane, MSc Behavioural Economics, 2012.
- Speculation and the price of oil: a scandal or a scapegoat?, Mark McDonnell, MSc in Applied Economics, 2012.
- What are the effects of fossil-fuel subsidies on growth, the environment, and inequality?, Christopher Holton, MSc in Applied Economics, 2012.
Thank you to all those students who have agreed to have their work showcased in this way.
