"Foundations and Frontiers of Urban Economics" Workshop

 

Invitation to attend the "Foundations and Frontiers of Urban Economics” workshop

The workshop will be conducted by distinguished urban economists and will study in depth some founding principles and frontier topics on urban economics. Conceived as a “Handbook Conference,” leading researchers will host a one-day session on Saturday, November 9th during the 2019 LACEA meeting in Puebla. This initiative is aimed at increasing the exposure to urban issues to economists whose research is focused on the Latin American region and attend LACEA regularly. We invite economists with an interest in urban and regional topics, as well as economists in Labor, Development, Public, Trade, and other applied fields.

Three keynote speakers will present at the workshop:

Fernando Ferreira is the C.F. Koo Professor of Real Estate, Professor of Business Economics and Public Policy at the Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania, as well as research associate at the National Bureau of Economic Research. Former co-editor of the Journal of Public Economics, his work has been published in the The Quarterly Journal of Economics, Journal of Political Economy, Review of Financial Studies, Economic Journal, among others.

Gilles Duranton is the Dean’s Chair in Real Estate Professor at the Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania, as well as research associate at the National Bureau of Economic Research. Co-editor of the Journal of Urban Economics, his work has been published in the American Economic Review, Journal of Political Economy, Econometrica, Review of Economic Studies, among others.

Marco Gónzales Navarro is an associate professor at University of California, Berkeley. His work has been published in American Economic Review, Journal of Political Economy, American Economic Journal: Applied Economics, Journal of Urban Economics, among others.

 

There will be a keynote lecture by Esteban-Rossi Hansberg in LACEA that will be organized in coordination with the workshop. The workshop will also hold a social event on Saturday night for all its participants. 

The workshop is organized jointly with the Urban Economics Association
