International Lecture and Reception Announcement

The International Section is extremely pleased to announce Daron Acemoglu, PhD will be our featured International Speaker at the 2016 AAEA Annual Meeting in Boston, MA. Dr. Acemoglu is an Elizabeth and James Killian Professor of Economics at Massachusetts Institute of Technology. His many publications are widely acclaimed for their contributions to understanding economic development and growth, the success or failure of nation states, and the transition to new technologies, and to advancing the field of network economics. His 2012 book, “Why Nations Fail” (with James Robinson), is decidedly relevant and important in today’s world of stark divisions between the rich and the poor. It’s described by the Wall Street Journal as “a splendid piece of scholarship” and by the Washington Post as “a surprisingly captivating read.” Professor Acemoglu won the prestigious John Bates Clark Medal in 2005, and he is an elected Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, among many professional honors he has received.
