The Second World Congress of Comparative Economics will take place in St. Petersburg
'1917 - 2017: Revolution and Evolution in Economic Development' is the topic of the Congress that will be held on June 15-17, 2017.
Organized by EACES, ACES, JACES and KACES with HSE - Saint Petersburg as local organizer, the Congress will bring together 300+ academics, experts and editors from all over the world.
'Comparative Economics is devoted to the study of economic systems, those currently existing as well as systems that have existed in the past or that may exist only in theory. Economic systems consist of economic agents, institutions, incentives, information flows and policies. Comparative economics studies how these components come into being to form economic systems and how they influence the economic performance of systems. While comparisons of the systems found in different countries have been a major focus of comparative economics research, the field equally embraces the analysis of the individual components of economic systems and of their performance at the level of firms, non-profit institutions, governments, etc.. Comparative Economics also studies how economic systems respond to crisis, economic transition and structural change brought about by globalization or changes in demographics, technology, etc. Also of interest is the effectiveness of policy measures in different economic systems, especially analyses of those policies dealing with current challenges faced by various types of economic systems. The World Congress of Comparative Economics welcomes both studies that are explicitly comparative as well as studies of single countries or sub-systems' - Josef C. Brada, Professor emeritus, Arizona State University (USA), Executive Secretary of the ACES says.
