The Department of Economics at the Sam M. Walton College of Business recently collaborated in a research workshop on the theme of Networks in Trade and Finance. The workshop, which took place on the University of Arkansas campus in October, was a collaboration between Walton and CIRANO. A French acronym, CIRANO stands for the Inter-University Center for Research and Analysis of Organizations and is based on Montreal.
“Networks are everywhere. Global trade, supply chains, financial markets, the World Wide Web, professional and social communities are examples of interconnected systems that are important to the structure and function of the modern world,” said Raja Kali, a professor in the Walton economics department and the organizer of the workshop.
