George Osborne Policy Paper Project (GOPPP)



The George Osborne Policy Paper Project was created to support student investigation of economic policy issues. Participating students, under the guidance of a faculty mentor, will research an economic policy issue of their choice and develop a position paper. The intended audience for the papers is the citizen interested in economic policy and its impact. The economic analysis and evidence will be presented in a fashion that is understandable and useful to the interested reader. Ideally, two students will work on a similar economic policy and each would take an opposing position. The Project will support six papers. Participants will receive stipends and there will be an awards dinner for student and faculty participants following completion of the project.
