Last year I ran a tag cloud here of the 539 papers presented at the 2009 American Economics Association annual conference. At the time, I complained a little about the absence of papers about the ongoing financial crisis. By way of refresher, here is last year’s AEA tag cloud.
Has anything changed this year? Well, here is my just-created tag cloud of all 1,300 (!) papers at the 2010 event. Check for yourself – more crisis! more risk! more evidence! Look Ma, we’re relevant!
