Randomistas (Outdoor Intramural Economics Graduate Soccer Team)

The term “randomistas’ is a nickname that was given to the Nobel-awarded trio: Esther Duflo, Abhijit Banerjee, and Michael Kremer, who popularized a form of study called “randomized control trials” which has had a significant impact on being able to measure the effect of a specific intervention (e.g. does providing free deworming pills to schoolchildren decrease the number of missed school days in a village?). Intramural Soccer connects different cohorts, and to bring IDEC & MSAE students together in a fun and engaging way. All skill levels are welcome.
