THE BLAIR ECONOMICS LAB

WHERE RESEARCH EXCELLENCE MEETS MENTORING

 

ABOUT

The Blair Economics Lab (BE-Lab) is an Economics research group based at Harvard University in the Graduate School of Education. Our research in applied micro-theory focuses on supply-side issues in higher education, the effects of occupational licensing on labor market discrimination, and the link between residential segregation and educational outcomes.

 

We work collaboratively with faculty and students from Clemson University, the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, Duke University, University of Chicago, Cornell University, and Northwestern University.
