Yesterday I received the letter of invitation from Duke‘s Center for the History of Political Economy (HOPE). I am going to be a visiting scholar at HOPE, entitled to study the Lucas Archives at David M. Rubenstein Library.
To be honest, I am really excited about this trip. It is not just a great opportunity to study the drafts Lucas made for his official publications. It is also an outstanding chance to share ideas with like-minded leading researchers… and to learn from them, of course. Bruce Caldwell, Kevin Hoover and Roy Weintraub: all of them are Duke professors. I can hardly wait to take off.
