Last October I had a post about the 5th Lindau Meeting on Economic Sciences. It's to be held in August of this year:
"The 5th Lindau Meeting on Economic Sciences will provide an open exchange of economic expertise and inspire cross-cultural and inter-generational encounters among economists from all over the world. The world economic and financial crisis will surely be a central theme between the laureates and the young participants, but most likely the global central banking system or the challenges to the international free trade will also be main topics."
I was delighted to learn today that Peter Bell, a Ph.D. candidate here in the Department of Economics at UVic, has been selected to participate.
