Atlanta Economics Club

The Atlanta Economics Club was formed more than 45 years ago as a forum for discussion of common interests of economists connected with private business enterprise, with federal, state or local government activity, or with business related academia. We are a local affiliate of the National Association for Business Economics (NABE).


Wednesday, January 20, 2021 from 11:50 AM to 1:00 PM EST
