If you're in Jerusalem tomorrow, you have a chance to hear Ariel Pakes' Arrow Lecture:

17:00-18:00 Ariel Pakes, Arrow lecture:
Learning and Equilibrium in A New Market

The 29th Jerusalem Summer School of Economics

    Industrial Organization studies how markets are structured and the way they respond to changes in conditions (e.g., to policy revisions). The field draws heavily on both theory and empirical work, and both will be amply represented in the Summer School. We will focus on several topics of current research interest: vertical markets, allocation in markets without prices, market dynamics, and regulation.
