Alan V. Deardorff festschrift compilation published

Wednesday, August 10, 2011

World Scientific Books published a compilation of materials from Alan V. Deardorff's festschrift as part of its Studies in International Economics series. The book, titled "Comparative Advantage, Growth, and the Gains from Trade and Globalization: a Festschrift in Honor of Alan V. Deardorff," is grounded in Deardorff's work in international trade economics, and includes papers by festschrift panelists to provide further perspective. Professor emeritus of public policy, Robert M. Stern, edited the book.

The Gerald R. Ford School of Public Policy and the Department of Economics hosted "A Festschrift in Honor of Alan V. Deardorff" in October 2009 to honor Deardorff's career contributions. The event involved panel discussions and a Citigroup Foundation Lecture by New York Times writer and Princeton University professor Paul Krugman. The event, organized by Stern and two of Deardorff's former students, brought leading international trade scholars from around the world to Ann Arbor.
