European Job Market, EEA, Naples, December 7 and 8, 2018

As the chair of the UCL junior recruiting committee for this year, I attended the EEA job market in Naples on December 7 and 8, 2018. We conducted two days of interviews and talked with many great job market candidates. Duplicating recruiting interviews (EEA and then AEA in Atlanta in January 2019) is a bit of a tax, but it was worth the cost. Let’s see how things will evolve. European universities might in the future only interview in Europe if candidates from all over the world do attend both the European and AEA meeting. And candidates from all over the world might eventually come to the European job market if European universities go there. This is clearly a case of multiple equilibria. More work is needed to figure out if equilibria are Pareto ranked.
