Recent NBER Research

The most recent issue of the NBER Reporter was just released and has a wealth of information and great summaries of recent work. Readers of this blog might be interested in two sections of the Reporter that list papers presented at recent conferences and meetings . Each page has a summary of the papers that were presented or discussed. Some that readers of this blog might find interesting:

The conference was organized by NBER Research Associates Adam B. Jaffe of Brandeis University, Joshua Lerner of Harvard University, and Scott Stern of Northwestern University.

Cities and Entrepreneurship: An NBER Conference on Cities and Entrepreneurship, organized by Edward L. Glaeser, NBER and Harvard University, Stuart Rosenthal of Syracuse University, and William Strange of the University of Toronto, took place in Cambridge on May 1 and 2.
