What do the mid-term election results mean for California and the nation?  Where do economists stand on nuclear energy, airline mergers, California's Enterprise Zone Program, and the state's high speed rail projections? How do people remember, think, make decisions and use language in an information overloaded digital age?  In the second annual Social Sciences Expert Speaker Series, UCI social scientists investigate these and other issues that impact the daily lives of Californians and global citizens. Join us for the second annual Social Sciences Expert Speaker Series to learn how UCI social scientists are making a difference through research on local and national politics, the economy, and making use of information overload in a digital age.
