The second day of #LINOecon offered plenty of options for informal exchange among Laureates and young economists. Subsequent to the Morning Workout and our Partner Breakfast, the day continued with exciting Laureate lectures. During our Next Gen Economics sessions young economists were the spotlight and presented their own research to the audience including the participating Laureates. The scientific programme ended with a lively panel discussion on “The Applied Micro Revolution”. While we are sending this to you, day two is wrapped with an informal Get-Together in the evening.
Quote of the Day
“Mainstream economics and behavioural economics complement each other beautifully. Behavioural economics is what makes mainstream economics work.”
