Resources in Economics
The Jane Bancroft Cook Library at New College has a strong collection of materials for the study of economics. Students have electronic access to journals and books, World Bank data, world development indicators, international finance statistics, government finance statistics, and various micro-oriented data bases, such as Census Bureau data, the Panel Study of Income Dynamics, and the National Longitudinal Youth Study. New College also has a Social Science Research Laboratory that is open to economics students.
Professor of Economics Tarron Khemraj serves as a research associate at the Caribbean Center for Money and Finance, a think tank for about 18 countries. “I advise the region on monetary policy, interest-rate policy, or money supply and exchange-rate policy," says Dr. Khemraj. "Through this, one of my students then had a full internship at the Central Bank of Barbados.”
New Topics New College is a public lecture series that runs from October through March. Free to students, the series features guest speakers discussing a wide range of current topics and issues — local, national and international.
