President's Message

Jayson Lusk
AAEA President

March 2017

A lot is happening with the AAEA.  Although the summer meetings are still a few months away, we have already begun to schedule invited papers, organized symposia, and selected papers.  I’m pleased to announce that we have an outstanding set of plenary speakers for the 2017 AAEA Annual Meeting in Chicago.  Charles Plott, one of the pioneers of experimental economics and political science, will kick off the meetings with the keynote address and Dan Ariely, author of Predictable Irrational, will end the meetings by giving the Galbraith Lecture.  And, back by popular demand is an additional night to network at Reunions/Receptions.

I’m also pleased to welcome two new AJAE editors: Tim Richards from Arizona State University and Terry Hurley from University of Minnesota.  Tim and Terry will join Tim Beatty and Travis Lybbert from University of California, Davis to round out the AJAE editor team.  Thanks to James Vercammen and JunJie Wu for their hard work and service as outgoing editors.
