2016 AEA Annual Meeting / ASSA Annual Meeting - American Economic Association / Allied Social Science Associations

13,00 100

Overview

Event Overview:

AEA, in conjunction with over 50 associations in related disciplines, holds a three-day meeting to present papers on general economic subjects. About 500 scholarly sessions are held each year. A placement service operates to assist employers and job applicants; it begins a day prior to the meetings. All members are invited to attend the annual business meeting, which takes place during this period.

About the AEA:

The American Economic Association was organized in 1885 at a meeting in Saratoga, New York, by a small group interested in economics. It was incorporated in Washington, DC, on February 3, 1923. The purposes of the Association are:

The encouragement of economic research, especially the historical and statistical study of the actual conditions of industrial life.
The issue of publications on economic subjects.
The encouragement of perfect freedom of economic discussion. The Association as such will take no partisan attitude, nor will it commit its members to any position on practical economic questions.

The spirit of these objectives has been maintained throughout the history of the Association. Once composed primarily of college and university teachers of economics, the Association now attracts an increasing number of members from business and professional groups. Today the membership is ca. 18,000, over half of whom are academics. About 15% are employed in business and industry, and the remainder largely by federal, state, and local government or other not-for-profit organizations.
