Research

Economics research enhances our understanding of real-world issues and facilitates evidenced-based decision making at the level of the individual, the level of the firm and for governments. Incorporating students into our research regimes is an important part of the educational and learning process. Memorial economics research runs the gamut from renewable natural resources (fisheries, forestry, and electricity) to non-renewable natural resources (minerals and petroleum) to public sector economics (equalization, fiscal policy, local government finance, taxation) to cost-benefit analysis (demand for water and moose vehicle accidents) to economic well-being, income inequality and social progress to money and banking to industrial organization, innovation and trade to labour market issues (gender wage gaps, apprenticeships, minimum wages, immigration, demographics, education, health and vocational training) to applied microeconomics and forecasting to environmental economics and climate change to applied econometrics and game theory.
