"Our conferences prove that we Midwest economists have much to offer to each other. For economics to continue its growth and maintain its interest and relevance, it is essential that we economists communicate with each other face to face. That we expose our work to the criticism of others, hear what others are thinking about, and exchange ideas and discuss common concerns. Our association has provided a forum for these activities longer than others. I urge you to attend. Get ‘in circulation’ and actively participate in the discussions. It will improve your own research and teaching, as well as that of others."
Sherwin Rosen, President 1996-97.
