Singapore Economic Review Conference 2007

Singapore -- The themes: "The future of Asian Financial Systems: Integration, Growth and Stability" & "Poverty and Growth Dynamics: Asian and International Perspectives"

Keynote Speaker: Professor Joseph Stiglitz, 2001 Nobel Laureate in Economics

Following the success of the Singapore Economic Review Conference 2005 (close to 300 economists from 33 countries attended), we are pleased to organize the second conference from August 2-4, 2007 in Singapore.

The Singapore Economic Review (SER) has been a leading journal in economics in Asia since it was founded in 1956. The SER is a general economics journal devoted to publishing papers of a high academic standard. It covers a wide range of economic issues, especially those impinging on Southeast Asia and the broader Asia-Pacific region.

The Brooks World Poverty Institute (BWPI) based at the University of Manchester, UK, is chaired by Nobel Laureate, Professor Joseph Stiglitz. BWPI is a multidisciplinary centre of excellence researching poverty, poverty reduction and inequality in both the developing and developed worlds. BWPI aims to provide a better understanding of why people are poor, what keeps them trapped in poverty and what can be done to help them - drawing upon the very best international practice in research and policy making.

The themes of the SER 2007 Conference are "The Future of Asian Financial Systems: Integration, Growth and Stability" and "Poverty and Growth Dynamics: Asian and International Perspectives". However, the SER also invites theoretical and empirical papers on all aspects of economics. We especially welcome papers with a focus on economic problems and issues related to Asian countries and papers in the following areas:

International Economics and International Finance
Banking and Financial Markets
Econometric Models and Applications
Public Economics
Population, Demography and Fertility
Energy, Environment and Resources
Transport Economics
Behavioural and Experimental Economics
China, India and other Emerging Economies
