The Berry Center ended the academic year hosting an applied economics seminar featuring prominent young economists Jesse Shapiro and Emily Oster, both of the University of Chicago. On April 22, 2008 the Berry Center welcomed one of the country's leading economists, Professor Kevin Murphy of the University of Chicago. Murphy is the George J. Stigler Distinguished Service Professor of Economics in the Department of Economics, the Graduate School of Business, at the University of Chicago.
