In addition to fostering closer ties between students and faculty and enriching and expanding its members’ knowledge of economics, ODE also provides international recognition of outstanding academic achievement in economics, awards a number of prizes for outstanding contributions, and provides opportunities to present papers at annual meetings and publish in The American Economist, the Journal of Omicron Delta Epsilon.

issues. In the past these have included discussions of alleged discrimination
in professional sports, the justification for public support of higher
education, the economics of crime, etc. In mid to late fall, there is a
