Sessions at the American Economic Association Annual Meetings

San Diego, January 2013

 The SGE will hold what promises to be exciting sessions at the AEA annual meetings in San Diego.  We received 68 paper proposals and selected 27 through a double blind review process.  We will have seven sessions on a wide range of topics ranging from value-added in trade and modeling short and long run income dynamics to small business finance, SNAP, and Native Americans (Indian county).  We will also organize a panel session on ethics of professional economic practice with the Association for Social Economics.  The program is provided below.  We are still looking for discussants, so if you are interested, please let us know.
