Lost Decades at ASSA/Chicago

For those of you attending the Allied Social Sciences Association (and AEA) meetings in Chicago, January 6-8, I’ll be at the W.W. Norton booth in the exhibition hall, Friday afternoon, particularly 5PM onward, ready to talk about Lost Decades: The Making of America’s Debt Crisis and the Long Recovery.


And if you’re interested in financial integration and global rebalancing, be sure to attend the IEFS session on international finance (updated program).

I’ll also be presenting “(Almost) A Quarter Century of Currency Expectations Data: Interest Rate Parity and the Risk Premium” on Jan 07, 2:30 pm, Hyatt Regency, New Orleans in the CEANA panel “Exchange Rates and the Macroeconomy”, while my coauthor Xingwang Qian will present “Are Chinese Trade Flows Different?” (Cheung, Chinn, and Qian) on Jan 06, 12:30 pm, Hyatt Regency, Soldier Field, in the CES panel “The Integration of China into the World Economy.”

    Where are you going drinking after the meetings? THAT’S where your Chicagoland non-academic fans and fenemies want to meet you.

    Peter G. Klein: Thanks, Peter! Wish I could claim credit, but I don’t have that aesthetic capability. Did make it on a list of top 50 most clever minimalist covers…

    Buzzcut: If I had a twitter account…but economists are a pretty retiring lot (at least this one is), so it’ll have to be in the convention hotel hallways.

    You should reconsider. Chicago has great bars (and nobody riots when they close early, like they do in Madison).
    I like the Berghoff in the Loop the best.

    Buzzcut….I grew up on the south side. I don’t remember the bars on Oak St. actually closing except to sweep the floors and roll out the drunks! ;-)
    Menzie’s book is well written. It’s refreshing to come across an econ book that is both accessible to lay readers such as ourselves and still academically serious enough to hold up to seminars and conferences.
