Expectations: Jun Lou

Jun Lou from China is excited about her first trip to Europe – of course, as her first destination will be #LindauEcon14.

Most importantly, I am looking forward to the Nobel Laureates’ lectures. It is fantastic to see so many Nobel Laureates at the same time. I am interested in so many topics that I won’t miss any single one of the lectures, such as the ones from Maskin, Stiglitz, Hansen,Diamond, Merton etc. And I am hoping that we young researchers can talk with them directly.

Besides, I expect to discuss possible economic careers with other participants, since having a career development plan is very important for young economists. Learning from Nobel Laureates and having discussions with other economists my age should be very helpful in this regard.

Jun Lou is coming all the way from China to get inspired by the Laureates and to meet fellow Young economists.

I will read the lecture abstracts from Lindau’s official website, in order to get a grasp on the main ideas of the different topics before the meeting. Meanwhile, the website has a lot of further information to explore, such as videos from previous lectures in the Mediatheque.

Besides, during my study period, I have already learned about lots of classic economic models, such as Nash’s equilibrium or Diamond’s overlapping generations model. It is amazing for me to be able to attend face-to-face presentations by scholars who created those classic economic models.

Talking with young economists from other countries will be interesting; especially when they have different studying backgrounds and different cultures. I expect this opportunity will not only help me in learning more about economics in general but also inspire my thoughts for future research work. Besides, it’s the first time I am visiting Europe and I feel very excited to get to know Germany.
