The projects include examining the impacts of national development, NAFTA, and globalization on regions and industries in Mexico and the U.S. Related curriculum offerings will include an Economics/LAS seminar offered during spring term (ECO/LAS 391K) under the direction of Prof. William Glade and a policy research project next year in the LBJ School to be directed by Prof.Victoria Rodriguez.
