Thanks to the LILMI Travel Grant awarded by AAEA to few other economists, I was able to learn about Uma Lele mentor fellowship which encourages research collaboration with members at the Annual Meetings.

March 2016
Spring is a busy time for most of us, but I hope to get you thinking about the 2016 AAEA Annual Meeting, which will take place in Boston July 31 to August 2, 2016! I made my airline reservations yesterday to get a good airfare.

We have lined up an incredible group of invited speakers, including Hilary Hoynes (UC Berkeley) for the Keynote Address, our own Jayson Lusk (Oklahoma State University) for the Presidential Address, Jo Swinnen (University of Leuven) for the Fellows Address, and Alain de Janvry (UC Berkeley) for the Galbraith Forum. In addition, Jeff Frankel (Harvard University) is the Speaker for the Applied Risk Analysis Luncheon. Frankel’s talk is entitled, “How Can Commodity-Exporting Countries Cope with Price Volatility?” I am especially excited about the International Lecture and Reception with Daron Acemoglu, (MIT), who will speak about, “Is Democracy an Obstacle to Economic Growth?” Finally, I want to feature the COSBAE, CWAE, and Extension Luncheon Speaker Ralph Christy (Cornell University) who will speak on, “Caught between a Discipline and a Profession: Agricultural Economics and the Well-being of Society.”
