Penn State Economics Professors Create Department of Economics Library

Two Penn State Economics professors have assembled a collection of very interesting reads — with zero budget and at zero cost. Jadrian Wooten and James Tierney created a library for students with a desire to learn more.

The Department of Economics Library is currently three shelves of books covering topics like microeconomics, macroeconomics, “pop” economics, finance, and more. You can find it right outside of Kern 320.
