Letter from the President

Dear Colleagues,

We’re happy to report that everything is on track for the summer meeting in Barcelona on June 27th-29th. We want to thank this year’s program chairs, Alessandra Fogli and Elena Manresa, who have put together an amazing conference. We also want to thank the local chair Joan Llull, who has planned this for 2020, then 2021,…and it is finally happening!.  Plenary speakers will be Veronica Guerrieri (Chicago Booth), Lars Hansen (University of Chicago), and Stefanie Stantcheva (Harvard University).  We recommend that people check out our website and go to local information for details on visa requirements, accommodations, and events.

We are also happy to report that this 2024 Summer conference in Barcelona will be the largest in our history, as was the number of submissions. In light of this, and to be able to accommodate more good papers, we decided to organize an extra Winter meeting in December this year.  We do not want to take Winter too seriously, so the conference will be organized by Universidad Di Tella, in Buenos Aires, from December 12th to the 14th.  We are very pleased to announce that Sebastian Di Tella and Mike Waugh have agreed to chair this first Winter meeting. As it turns out, the Economics Department of Di Tella celebrates its 30th birthday this year, and you are all invited to submit your new paper to the party!

But Summer eventually follows Winter, and we are also very happy to announce that Julieta Caunedo and Kurt Mitman will chair the Summer Meetings in Copenhagen in 2025. And many thanks to the local organizers: Jeppe Druedahl, Søren Hove Ravn, Morten Graugaard Olsen and John Vincent Kramer. So yes, get to work and start that new project you were thinking about  to make sure you have enough papers lined up on time.

For those of you at the ASSA 2024 winter meeting, there were three SED sessions this year: “Inflation: The Roles of Beliefs and Credibility”, “Behavioral Macroeconomics,” and “International Capital Flows and Reserve Currency Paradox” Many thanks to the respective organizers: Viral Acharya (NYU), Karthic Sastry (Princeton), and Oleg Itskhoki (UCLA).

Finally, for real-time updates on what is happening in the society, check us out on twitter at @SEDmeeting.
