My projects this week consisted of a number of things. I researched tax rates in Iceland, Hong Kong, and Mongolia for Dan Mitchell. For Stephen Slivinski, I compiled a list of farm subsidies directed at Fortune 500 companies. I also did a few small things for Chris Edwards such as finding reputable sources for a paper of his.
I very much enjoyed Dr. Palmer's research seminar on political economy this week. I was particularly interested since I am attending grad school in that very subject next year. I also really enjoyed Gene Healy's seminar on logic and evidence. I'm saving the handout to utilize in the future when I'm writing papers in grad school.
I finished Stephen Slivinski's book Buck Wild, which further sparked my interest in fiscal policy. I'm looking forward to reading more Cato books while I'm here.
