Students’ economic policy proposals commended at national competition
U.S. economic policy is a political juggernaut, something with which many fiscally-minded experts continue to grapple. But one group of Northeastern students recently took U.S. fiscal preparation head on and fared rather well.
Last month, a team of students in the Economics Society was named one of three finalists in the Fiscal Challenge, a national competition that charges college students with devising plans to ensure the country’s fiscal future.
