On 28 December, 2018, we welcomed the speaker Dr.Zhuang Hao from Beihang University.He obtained his PhD degree in Economics at Washington State University. His research focuses on applied microeconomics and health economics.

In the seminar, Dr.Hao presented his last research “The Cross-Border Spillover Effects of Recreational Marijuana Legalization”, which examines the spillover effects of recreational marijuana legalization (RML) in Colorado and Washington on neighboring states.The research finds that RML causes a sharp increase in marijuana possession arrests in border counties of neighboring states relativeto non-border counties in these states.

More than 20 teachers and students of the School of Economics and Management have participated in the seminar and discussed the study with Dr.Hao. We are looking forward to the Bi-Week Applied Economics Colloquium next semester.
