On behalf of the Comparative Advantage Editorial Board, we are pleased to present the seventh volume of Stanford University’s undergraduate economics journal.
This year’s journal and blog cover a wide range of topics, such as the U.S. opioid epidemic and community-based health programs, global oil prices and the Malaysian economy, and the 2008 financial crisis and hedge funds. We are grateful to the authors of our articles, to all who submitted work for consideration, and to our associate editors for their time and effort during the selection and publication process.
Finally, we would like to thank the Stanford Economics Department and the Stanford Economics Association (SEA) for their continued support.
Raymond Gilmartin and Matthew Hamilton
