Econ Ed at the ASSAs

Happy Holidays everyone! Although I've been MIA on the blog for, um, months now, I would have to admit total blog defeat if I didn't do my usual post of all the Econ Ed sessions I can find on the ASSA program. Since I'm not quite ready to throw in the blogging towel entirely, here you go... (if I missed anything, please feel free to add in the comments!)
