AEA Highlights II - Death Be Not Proud

by Ken Houghton

We got our luggage, so I'm going swimming. Meanwhile

  1. Paul Krugman: "I'm going to take some time away from economics tomorrow and go down to the Ninth Ward."

  2. Sir Nicholas Stern, giving the Richard T. Ely Lecture on the Economics of Climate Change, taking a moment at the beginning to note that Andrew Glyn was interred just a few hours before. (He followed that up by noting, in effect, that, even in his best case scenario, coral reefs are going to be significantly destroyed. Time to plan that Australia trip.*)

*And, while I'm on the subject of Australia, condolences to "Mr. Mochi-Tsuki," whose father died a few days ago and who cannot go to the funeral because he has applied to be a U.S. citizen.
