New Website: “Resources in Personnel Economics”

Peter Kuhn, Professor of Economics at the University of California Santa Barbara, announces a new website about “Personnel Economics“. (Thanks to Uschi Backes-Gellner for the information.)

Peter writes:

“I’m delighted to announce the release of a new, free online resource for researchers and instructors in Personnel Economics.
Resources in Personnel Economics is a searchable website that supplies a curated, annotated, and hyperlinked set of references to key articles in the field. As part of my ongoing efforts to support my course and textbook, I will be updating these references on a continuing basis.
Please have a look to see if the site might be useful to you. Note that the site also contains links to instructional materials, such as slides, discussion questions and answers. You can also sign up for a monthly email list that announces new articles and other resources that (in my highly personal judgment) are likely to be important in the field or useful in instruction.” (Source: Email via Uschi Backes-Gellner)
