A new grant from the Charles G. Koch Charitable Foundation will help Stetson School of Business and Economics professor Scott Beaulier, Ph.D., advance the study of political economy at Mercer University. Dr. Beaulier, the department chair and assistant professor of economics, will give a special topics course for the spring semester and bring in a number of high-level economists to deliver lectures on contemporary issues in political economy.
The $16,000 grant will fund a one-credit course, Readings in Political Economy, this spring. The grant will help cover the cost of books for students and to bring guest speakers to campus to participate in the course and deliver lectures on campus. [more]
