Fang Yang and I organized the Spring 2017 Midwest Macroeconomics Meetings at LSU.

I am organizing a panel on Long Run Factors in Economic Development at the Annual Conference of the Western Economic Association Intl.  scheduled for June 27th-July 1st, 2021. I am also chairing a panel on Culture, Gender and Economic Development.
