The 1st Annual International Conference on Applied Econometrics in Hawaii

October 28, 2015

More than 7 years have passed since the onset of the world financial crisis, but the world economy still seems to be in a rather unstable condition. Financial markets respond quite nervously to events like Greece's debt negotiations, China's economic slow-down, and the US interest rate hike. Many changes have been taking place, and at the same time, many challenges for economists to work on have arisen.

This 1st Annual International Conference on Applied Econometrics in Hawaii will provide a significant opportunity to raise and analyze current economic issues. The conference will bring diverse researchers together to share information, ideas and various data, which will foster professional and personal development, education and future networking.

Main objectives of the Conference:

- To develop knowledge and cultivate a better understanding of international economic issues;

- To allow its participants from various areas around the Pacific to have extensive discussions on various aspects of economy;

- To promote strong relations between researchers and institutions;

#538 Nobels and Astrophysics
This week we start with this year's physics Nobel Prize awarded to Jim Peebles, Michel Mayor, and Didier Queloz and finish with a discussion of the Nobel Prizes as a way to award and highlight important science. Are they still relevant? When science breakthroughs are built on the backs of hundreds -- and sometimes thousands -- of people's hard work, how do you pick just three to highlight? Join host Rachelle Saunders and astrophysicist, author, and science communicator Ethan Siegel for their chat about astrophysics and Nobel Prizes.
