ILLINOIS Econ Wins FREDcast Braggin' Rights Again!

Students in ECON 103, 202, 203, & 303 participated in the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis' FREDcast Competition

Congratulations to students in ECON 103, 202, 203, and 303 for winning the FREDcast competition versus Mizzou again this Fall 2018!

FREDcast is an interactive forecasting game in which players make forecasts for four economic releases: GDP, inflation, employment, and unemployment. Many of the ECON Undergraduate Core Courses (100-300 level) have built this experience into the classroom, so students have a better understanding of how concepts are applied in the real-world, while having a fun experience! Part of the challenge is competing against students at the University of Missouri (Mizzou), which ILLINOIS Econ has won two semesters in a row!
