ESA-Europe Conference
Professors Stoddard and Preece were able to travel to Prague, Czech Republic to present their paper “Women Don’t Run: Experimental Evidence on the Role of Competition Aversion” at the Economic Science Association-Europe meeting. In addition to getting some good feedback on their paper and getting to know some fantastic experimental economists, they fell in love with Prague. And, Professor Stoddard was a good sport when Professor Preece insisted they travel to the awesomely creepy Seldec Ossuary.
