President's Column

November 2023

We will have a good slate of sessions at the ASSA meetings in San Antonio on January 5-7, 2024. Upon the recommendation of the TW Schultz Committee, we invited Jeff Wooldridge of Michigan State University as the TW Schultz Memorial Lecture and Awardee. Jeff Wooldridge is a University Distinguished Professor of Economics at Michigan State University and a Fellow of the Econometrics Society. His TW Schultz lecture will be held on Friday, January 5, 2024 (typically starts at 6 pm) in San Antonio. The title of his lecture is “Regression-Based Strategies for Heterogeneous Treatment Effects with Staggered Interventions.”  This would be of great interest to those interested in causal inference work. Jeff has more recently been working on extensions to two-way fixed effects. Lately, he has also been able to develop a framework that allows various estimators with extra cross-sectional controls or time period controls.

28th ICABR Conference

Call for Abstract Submissions
Innovation, Agricultural Productivity and Sustainability of the Bioeconomy 

In 2021, the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development released their report Making Better Policies for Food Systems, which documented that since 1960, global food production increased 390%, while the amount of land used to produce food increased by 10% and food systems account for 21-37% of GHG emissions. The OECD went on to say that agriculture is facing the triple challenge of providing adequate, affordable, safe and nutritious food for the growing population, providing livelihoods all along the food value chain and doing so while increasing the sector’s sustainability and contributing to combatting climate change. Meeting these challenges will require innovations that improve crop productivity, as well as contributing to a circular bioeconomy.
