Industrial Change and County Median Income: The Moderating Role of State Power Resources and Policies
February 28, 2020, 12 - 1 pm, Sloan 319
Dr. Stephanie Moller (UNC-Charlotte) will be presenting at the Sociology Colloquium and we’re invited to attend. Her talk will examine whether state power resources and policies provide potential buffers from industrial employment shifts (from manufacturing to post-industrial employment).
