The 2019 annual conference of Theoretical Research in Development Economics (ThReD), an international society of economic researchers promoting theoretical research in development economics, will bring together leading scholars from around the world to present and discuss recent advances in the theory and theory-driven empirical knowledge. These advances touch on a variety of topics that are critical to economic development, including: premature mortality; technology adoption; the roles of social networks, culture, identity, social norms in economic development; corruption; and political economy.
Notably, Nobel Laureate Roger Myerson will present his recent research on the costs of poor incentives on politicians that stem from political centralization in developing countries. The ThReD conference will be hosted in the United States for only the second time since 2007. For a list of presenters and the conference schedule, please visit the Kellogg Institute website.
Cosponsored by the Kellogg Institution for International Studies, the Notre Dame Institute for Scholarship in the Liberal Arts (ISLA), and the Department of Economics.
