Business School a university for the real world

Event

12 March 2020

The Schol of Economics and Finance invites you to attend a seminar where Professor Anthony Heyes from the University of Ottawa will present on "Traffic Pollution Inhibits Learning: Causal Evidence from Tehran".

Abstract:

A large body of research points to a negative correlation between a child’s exposure to air pollution and academic outcomes, but the causal effect underpinning all or part of that correlation is yet to be established. We provide natural experimental evidence from Tehran, the largest city in Iran, that an increase in traffic-related air pollution (TRAP) in the vicinity of a primary school causes a reduction in learning by children at that school. The effects prove substantial and robust to a wide set of challenges.

Everyone is welcome to attend.
