Four members of AIER’s research staff shared their expertise and the results of some recent research with mid-career journalists who visited our campus earlier this month.
They delivered their lectures to Columbia University Knight-Bagehot Fellows in Economics and Business Journalism. The Knight-Bagehot Fellowship annually awards journalists an all-expenses-paid year off to study at Columbia. This is the eighth year the Fellows have concluded their year’s study with two days of lectures and informal talks at AIER.
Ten Knight-Bagehot Fellows were on campus. They represented Bloomberg, The Washington Post, The Economist, Fortune, BBC News, The Los Angeles Times, Foreign Policy Magazine, and other news outlets.
Our research staff covered a wide range of topics. Director of Research and Education Rosalind Greenstein spoke about new ways journalists can understand local development. Patrick Coate, research fellow, talked about his recent study of the slowdown of internal migration in the United States.
Polina Vlasenko, senior research fellow, spoke about her research into the changing relationship between growth and employment. And Natalia Smirnova, senior research fellow and director of education, guided the visitors through the Federal Reserve’s public website for national, regional, and industry data.
