The I.S.E.O Summer School 2010 gathered 84 participants from 31 countries around the globe. This heterogenic but yet solid group spent an unforgettable week in the northern Italy. Students and young professionals had arrived to a peaceful village of Iseo to follow lectures, held by the forefront economists and three Nobel Laureates.
The topic of the conference was: ” Towards the New Architecture. Emerging and developing economies after the crisis.” Each of the seven outstanding instructors tied up their own special expertise and research to the topic of the conference in a fascinating way. Probably the most expected lecturer, chairman of the institute and a Nobel Laureate 1987, Professor Robert Solow kept two lectures during the week and attended actively to off-class activities as well. Moreover, Professor Michael Spence, Nobel Laureate 2001, who is already an old friend to our summerschool, kept an intensive and informative lecture on Tuesday afternoon. The third Nobel Laureate this year was Professor George Akerlof, who shared the Nobel of 2001 with Spence and Joseph E. Stiglitz.
Beyond the Nobel-Laureates participants had a chance to enjoy the lectures of three other experts: Robert Wescott, professor Ha-Joon Chang from Cambridge and professor Paul Collier from Oxford University.
