The annual meeting of the American Economic Association starts in Chicago today. It is hard to get an overview about the 170-page Meeting program. But fortunately there are some studies for which previews are already available – of these, I selected my favourites: the papers whose presentations (and discussions) I am most looking forward to. People who don’t attend the meeting will find a link to the presentation or abstract. I am going to blog from the meeting, and I am going to tweet.
Participants of the meeting will find information about the Where and When of the discussions. Of course, there are many more interesting topics and panel discussions, such as the discussion about the Euro with Axel Weber, Olivier Blanchard, and Jordi Gali or the one about Sovereign Default with Martin Feldstein and Carmen Reinhart. Here, I just focus on the studies that people can already read.
