Black Swan Award

MU Economics

Congratulations to Dr. Brittany Street, the most recent winner of the Mizzou Economics black swan.  The swan is an icon of momentous career accomplishment and is passed from the previous holder to the current honoree in a moving and embarrassingly public ceremony.  Dr. Liisa Laine surprised Professor Street in our most recent department meeting, presenting the coveted wood carving in recognition of Street’s recent accepted publication in the Quarterly Journal of Economics, “Children’s Indirect Exposure to the U.S. Justice System: Evidence from Longitudinal Links between Survey and Administrative Data.”
