It’s that time of year, the first weekend in January when thousands of economists descend in droves on an unsuspecting city. This year the city is Atlanta, and Duke faculty and graduate students are attending the 2019 Annual Meeting of the American Economic Association (AEA) on Jan. 4-6. They will be presenting or participating as chairs, co-authors, discussants, and panelists, while Ph.D job market candidates will interview for jobs throughout the weekend.
