Professor Peter Simon led an Economics Dialogue of Civilizations program in the Dominican Republic this summer.

While taking two economics classes: Economic Development and Contested Issues, the class met with representatives from USAID and the Peace Corps and other guest lecturers.  The students visited historic sites around the country and lived right in the middle of Santo Domingo to immerse themselves in the Dominican culture.
