Empirical papers on these and other areas of empirical health economics are welcome.
Among the economists who have already accepted our invitation to present a paper are Amitabh Chandra (Harvard), Arie Kapteyn (RAND), and Maarten Lindeboom (VU University Amsterdam).
The deadline for submissions is November 30, 2012. Submissions should be original research papers that have not yet been accepted for publication.
