Economic-Con 2013, This Weekend in San Diego...

By January 2, 2013

Follow me on:

If you are in the San Diego area with not a lot to do this weekend (Jan 4-6, 2013) and feeling nerdy, you might want to check out the annual meeting of the American Economic Association. The general idea is that 10,000 or so economists (along with other social scientists) descend upon a hotel and go to academic-ish presentations about basically any field of economics you could hope for. (If you don't believe me, the program can be found here.)

Even is the serious stuff (or the registration fee) isn't for you, you can still check out the 5th Annual Economics Humor Session on Saturday night. This event is free and open to the public, and it's usually a good time, at least as far as economics goes. :)
