Dr. Bart Wilson(mentor), Taylor Jaworski, Peter Ouzounov, Andrew Smith, Karl Schurter, Robbie Grace

2006 Interns:
David Majors, Jason Liu, Karl Schurter, David Phillips, Reshma Hussam, Zack Yang (not pictured)

Last year(2006) the interns read Adam Smith's Theory of Moral Sentiments and worked in teams to design an economic experiment motivated by TMS.
