Podcast: What has the U.S. shale oil and gas boom taught us about labor markets?

Associate Professor Gregory B. Upton, Jr.

On March 25, 2021, CES Associate Professor Gregory B. Upton, Jr., presented a podcast for the International Association for Energy Economics. In the podcast, Upton discusses how, over the past decade, the advent of oil and natural gas production from shale geological formations fundamentally changed not only global energy markets but also the communities that reside above these formations. He examines how economists might gain insights from this natural experiment about labor markets and business cycles more broadly.
