On Wednesday, November 28, Nina Pavcnik, Professor of Economics at Dartmouth College, will join us as part of the department seminar series. Her paper, "Export Markets and Labor Reallocation in a Poor Country," studies labor allocation in response to new export opportunities in a setting where a majority of workers work in small, often household-owned businesses and examines the effects of the 2001 U.S.-Vietnam Bilateral Trade Agreement (BTA) on the allocation of employment across industries and employers in Vietnam.
