Paul Krugman, Professor of Economics and International Affairs at Princeton University, will give the Regional Studies Annual Lecture at the AAG in Washington, DC on April 16, 2010 - at 12:40. His paper is entitled 'The New Economic Geography, Now Middle Aged' and is likely to stimulate much interest and debate, particularly since it follows a whole day of sessions on April 15 in which Ed Glaeser will be speaking on 'Two Centuries of Urban Resurgence and Decline'. Other speakers lined up for this full day session on 'Regional Resilience' include Ann Markusen, Sam Ock Park, Maryann Feldman, Andrew Isserman, Henry Yeung and Susan Christopherson - an impressive list of speakers!
