From June 29 to July 3, JICA-RI research fellow Jean-Claude Maswana attended a conference of Western Economic Association International (WEAI) in San Diego, California. As one of the world’s largest of its kind with nearly 2,000 members, WEAI annually provides an opportunity where economists from the country and overseas come together and exchange ideas on the latest economic research. The agendas of the conference are so broad (the number of all sessions totaled nearly 300) that this year they ranged from: “Basketball: Market Structure and Labor Issues” and “Economics of Happiness,” to “U.S. Labor Market,” and “Foreign and Direct Foreign Investment.”
