Abstract

The Eighteenth World Congress of the International Economic Association (IEA) was held in Mexico City from 19 to 23 June 2017. The association was founded in 1950 on the initiative of the Social Sciences Department of UNESCO with the purpose of strengthening personal relations among economists living in various parts of the world by organising scientific conferences and joint research programmes. It regularly discloses publications of international importance relating to current topics and reacting to them. The IEA is governed by a Council that meets triennially; its primary task is the supervision of the general policy of the Association and the election of the leaders for the subsequent cycle. As an acknowledgement of their research activity and result, the following former IEA presidents received Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences: Robert Merton Solow in 1987, Amartya Sen in 1998, and George Akerlof and Joseph E. Stiglitz in 2001. János Kornai, who is Member of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences and currently professor emeritus at Harvard University and Budapest Corvinus University was president of the IEA between 2002 and 2005.
