Conference for NUS Alumni Theorists

Over the last 20 years, our graduate program has nurtured a promising group of economic theorists, many of whom are now faculty members at other universities. A virtual reunion conference for NUS alumni theorists was held over two Friday afternoons in late July and there are plans to organize an in-person conference next year, the pandemic situation permitting. The program for this year featured the following speakers.
