Ghana could end child labor on cocoa farms by increasing the prices it pays impoverished farmers by about 50%, a U.S. study said on Wednesday, as global efforts to end child labor stall. Paying just 3% more at the farm gate could stop children in Ghana doing the most hazardous tasks, like using machetes, or working more than 42 hours a week, researchers said, as the illegal practice is driven by poverty and rarely prosecuted.

President's Message

David Zilberman
AAEA President

March  2019

Most of us are amid a cold and wet winter engaged in our research, teaching, and outreach activities, but now is time to start thinking about the summer.

We are in the midst of preparation to the 2019 AAEA Annual Meeting in Atlanta, GA. Registration to the meeting is open and we urge you to register by May 22, 2019, to benefit from the lower early registration fees. Presenters of sessions will be informed next week, and are required to register by May 15, 2019. Travel grants for the 2019 AAEA Annual Meeting are open for applications and the deadline is also set for May 15, 2019. Our travel grants programs aim to enable members with limited resources to participate in the meeting and present their paper or poster. The AAEA Trust is a major source of support for participation in the program, and by contributing to expanding it, you expand the opportunities to participate in the meetings.
