GLO Global Conference 2022 on December 1-3. Announcement.

The dramatic global challenges request close collaborations between scientist around the world and those interested in evidence-based policymaking supporting welfare. GLO has a particular mission for this. The event serves this purpose.

But 2022 is also the year of Jacob Mincer’s 100th birthday, 30 years after the Nobel Prize for Gary Becker in Population Economics; it completes 35 years of publishing the Journal of Population Economics (JOPE) and 5 years of GLO; and the world population reached 8 billion on November 15. Good reasons for reflecting the path of the discipline.
