TACOMA - Michael Spiedel, PLU alum in Economics and Hispanic Studies, was announced as one of Idaho Business Review's “Forty Under Forty” award recipients.

Michael combined his interest in Spain and Economics by writing his economics capstone on the impact of trade policies of Francisco Franco in Spain. He found the impacts of severely restricting international trade to be detrimental to the well-being of both businesses and consumers during this historical period. Congrats Michael!
