2011 ASSA Meetings: Economics and religion sessions

Mark D. White

Going through the preliminary program for the upcoming Allied Social Science Association meetings in Denver in early January, I decided to highlight sessions that I found interesting for one reason or another. (See this previous post for sessions that focus on economics and ethics.)
