Forthcoming Paper

H. Chade, J. Eeckhout, L. Smith, ''Sorting Through Search and Matching Models in Economics'' is now forthcoming Journal of Economic Literature.

Job Market Candidates

Three students have accepted job offers: Alireza Sepahsalari (UCL) from Bristol, Pau Milan (UPF) from Autonoma Barcelona and Eeva Mauring (UCL) from Vienna. Congratulations!

Academia Europaea

I have been made a member of Academia Europaea. It is an honor. As academies go, when you join you are at the very bottom of the ladder. There are some really impressive members. But at the same time, two less impressive things stand out: few women, and few young people… Some of these considerations lead Richard Feynman (physics) to resign from the National Academy of Sciences in 1959.
