Time: 14:00-15:20, Friday Dec. 6, 2019

Venue: Room S304, Xin Shang Yuan

Lecturer: DAI Liang

 


Abstract:

Exemplified with top journal articles on different fields of economics, this lecture illustrates how to tell China’s stories with analytical tools of econometrics in the narrative of modern economics. China’s stories are of greater academic value if they can serve as the basis for audience from all over the world to understand issues not peculiar to China. In addition, the articles to be presented also showcase the structure of original research in economics, and may thus provide inspiration for the students’ own theses.
