Delighted to have the opportunity to meet once again some of the most influential researchers in the questions of Poverty and Uncertainty. Professor’s Deaton’s work on the measurement of Poverty has been fundamental at deepening our understanding of poverty and challenging people’s misperceptions about the conditions and circumstances that the poor have to face every day in their lives. And, the work by Professors Spence and Stiglitz on the central role of asymmetries of information in the functioning of economies stresses the role of uncertainty in how we design policies. Having the opportunity to share with them and the other participants in the course will be invaluable to the further development of my research. By the way, if anyone is at Milan on the 11th, I would be glad to meet.
On this occasion I am bringing my paper about segregation and social learning to the CEAs. I missed last year's meeting, so this year I am really exited about meeting my conference mates once again. Now, you will have to wake up early if you want to attend my talk as I will be part of the group initiating the conference, Friday at 8:30 a.m. I'll be expecting you and all your comments. See you.
