Eric posted yesterday on Ed Glaeser's upcoming Condliffe Lecture at the University of Canterbury. Some of you have if the talk will be videoed, given that you are not based on Christchurch. Absent any technical hitches, the talk will be posted on YouTube as part of the University's What If series of public lectures, a week or so after the talk.
But if you are based on Wellington, you can go one better. Why not register now for the annual conference of the New Zealand Assocation of Economists, which is taking place at the Amora Hotel in Wellington next week--Wednesday July 3 - Friday July 5. Ed is giving a keynote address at 4:00 on Wednesday. Other keynote speakers are Maurice Obstfeld of Berkeley, John Riley of UCLA, Mardi Dungey of U. Tasmania, and John Quiggin of U. Queensland (best known in the blogsphere as one of the authors at Crooked Timber).
Quite apart from the keynote addresses, the conference will also feature TVHE's Matt Nolan, who is presenting a paper and also participating in a panel discussion on the Open Banking Resolution, along with Ian Woolford from the Reserve Bank and Bank critic, David Tripe; and I will be presenting my work on Do Catches win Matches. Groping to Bethlehem's and Association Vice President, Bill Kaye-Blake, is not giving a paper this year, but he will be at the conference.
The full conference web site including the link to registration and the programme is here. I hope to see as many of you there as possible.
