at Lund

At the national conference for Swedish economists. Feel like a mutant in the Swedish society and have to bargain with people about speaking Swedish or English. The presentation on coups turns out to be fruitful. Torsten said, ‘do not expect this can be your job market paper!’ I did not expect either, so it’s fine. But what’s my job market paper? Good question. I have been slow somehow because I do not really want to graduate…This is not good.

btw, Lund looks more Danish than Swedish to me. This information may be meaningless for people outside Nordic countries though.

Another btw, someone from SITE ( told me that they want to enlarge their program on China and would really like to recruit people working on China and development. Hopefully this will be of use for the job market candidates.
