The YSI Latin America Working Group is hosting a workshop on the Economy and Development of Latin America at the Annual Meetings.
The Kiel Institute for the World Economy (IfW), with support from the Young Scholars Initiative (YSI), is excited to announce the first Social and Biological Roots of Cooperation and Risk Taking Workshop (SBRCR 2015).
Prof. Hidalgo will join us next Wednesday at 8PM CEST for a discussion of Complexity Economics, Networks and his new book ‘Why Information Grows’.
The aim of this workshop is to provide a platform for critical inquiry about the nature of economic development and of economic inequalities in opportunities and outcomes from a range of theoretical and practical perspectives.
Spanning two world wars, the Great Depression, global decolonization and a tremendous thirty-year economic boom, this period is of pivotal importance for understanding today’s economic world.
The workshop targets PhD students and young researchers and consists of mini-courses covering topics and methods that are overlooked in the conventional economics curriculum. It also features student presentation sessions, which give young scholars the opportunity to present and discuss their research in a collaborative environment.
