Eesti Majandusteaduse Seltsi aastakonverents 2019

Head EMSi liikmed ja sõbrad!

 

14. Eesti Majandusteaduse Seltsi aastakonverents toimub Pühajärve Spa & Puhkekeskuses 31. jaanuar - 1. veebruar 2019. Seekordse konverentsi keskseks teemaks on majandusteoreetilised ja -poliitilised vastuolud, mida aitab mõtestada peaesinejaks kutsutud Gilles Saint-PaulGilles Saint-Paul on Pariisi Majanduskooli (Paris Sciences Lettres) professor ja Abu Dhabis oleva New Yorki Ülikooli külalisprofessor. Ta kaitses oma doktoritöö majandusteaduses MIT-s ja on varasemalt töötanud ka DELTA-le, Pompeu Fabra Ülikoolile, Birkbeck Kolledžile ning Toulouse Majanduskoolile. Ta on olnud Prantsuse Majandusnõunike Nõukogu liige ja nõustanud ka Münchenis baseeruvat EEAG gruppi. Tema uurimistöö keskendub makroökonoomika teooriale üldiselt ning arenguökonoomika, tööturu ja poliitökonoomia teemadele kitsamalt. Lisaks arvukatele artiklitele rahvusvahelistes teadusajakirjades on tema sulest ilmunud „The Political Economy of Labour Market Institutions" (Oxford University Press, 2000) ning „The Tyranny of Utility" (Princeton University Press, 2011).  2007 aastal autasustati teda Yrjo Jahnssoni medaliga, mis antakse välja iga kahe aasta tagant parimale alla 45 aastasele Euroopa majandusteadlasele.
