NBER Reporter: Fall 2000
Twenty-First NBER Summer Institute Held in 2000
In the summer of 2000, the NBER held its twenty-first annual Summer Institute.
Nearly 1000 economists from universities and organizations throughout the world
attended. As in prior years, this year's program was funded primarily by a grant from the
Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation, with additional support from the National Science
Foundation and the National Institute on Aging.
The papers presented at dozens of different sessions during the four-week
Summer Institute covered a wide variety of topics. A complete agenda, and many of the
papers presented at the various sessions, is available on the NBER's web site here.
