Meeting of Young Minds in Frontiers of Economics (MYM)

Feb 20–22, 2024 Download .ics

| The Indian Institute of Technology Bombay (IITB), Mumbai, India

Challenges And Emerging Perspectives


The subject matter of Economics has been undergoing rapid change during the last two decades with the advent of new technologies and new methods of production and distribution. Several economies have embarked on new paradigms in their approach to improve the welfare of their people. Of which, the theoretical underpinnings are continuously being re-examined and re-tested to investigate its validity in a changing global environment. At this juncture it is imperative to have a common dialogue among young minds for rethinking approaches to development.

The following themes will be discussed:

  • Agriculture and Sustainability
  • Application of AI and ML in Economic Analysis
  • Behavioural and Experimental Economics
  • Development Economics
  • Energy and Environment
  • Economics of Education
  • Financial Economics and Corporate Governance
  • Governance and Public Policy
  • Health Economics
  • Labour Economics and Gender
  • Microeconomics
  • Macroeconomics
  • International Trade


The event will have a Plenary Session, followed by parallel sessions. For the parallel sessions all the papers will be refereed before accepted for presentations. Case Studies from on any of the sub-themes of the event would also be considered for interaction in the Panel discussion. We expect to bring well established scholars for the Panel discussion. The Panels would provide broad points for wide discussion on the themes of Economic impacts of Climate Change, Economics of Innovation and Information Economics.
