We proudly present the June 2014 issue of the NARSC newsletter. The June 2014 edition of the newsletter features thought pieces on Open Regional Science. The centerpiece of these pieces is a condensed version of Sergio Rey’s Western Regional Science Association (WRSA) presidential address, which was well received and stimulated thoughtful debate. Erik Heikkila, Dani Arribas-Bel, and Roger Bivand were kind enough to contribute reflection pieces on the presidential address.
In addition to these thought pieces, the newsletter features a piece from Douglas Wrenn on shale development and employment in the Northeast. We also include profiles of two junior faculty members from the Northeastern region – Douglas Wrenn (Penn St.) and Nathan Yang (Yale). Michael Carroll, the editor of Regional Science Policy and Practice, has provided a piece that profiles the journal.
