E Pluribus Prosperitas

May 23, 2013

I’m writing a chapter for a forthcoming edited book, E Pluribus Prosperitas, which brings together a group of researchers working on the economics of cultural diversity.

The book is being put together by Jessie Bakens (VU University), Peter Nijkamp (VU, Tinbergen Institute) and Jacques Poot (Waikato University) and will be published soon by Edward Elgar.

Our contributors group met in Amsterdam a few weeks back for a workshop organised by VU Amsterdam and Tinbergen. It was an intensive couple of days, but left me excited about the final product. In the typical style of academic timelines, the book itself should be out late this year or in 2014. But you can get a flavour of the thing at the Tinbergen site, where the presentations are up here, here and here. Mine is here. For the other chapters, including contributions by Giovanni Peri and Barry Chiswick, you’ll need to wait til publication day.
