Prof. Gil Riella’s publication at the Journal of Economic Theory

We are proud to announce that professor Gil Riella’s article “Preference for Flexibility and Dynamic Consistency” has been accepted for publication at the Journal of Economic Theory, JET.

JET has been consistently classified as one of the top 10 journals in Economics and one of the top 5 in Economic Theory and there is only a handful of Brazilian authors that publish in JET. (See, for example, the recent article: Kalaitzidakis, P., Mamuneas, T. and Stengos, T. (2011),  An updated ranking of academic journals in economics, Canadian Journal of Economics, 44 (4): 1525-38.)

We are honored to have EPRG’s member Gil Riella among those few authors and congratulate Gil for his achievement.

Prof. Riella is the author of our Working Paper number 1, and since the start of our series has honored us with three working papers (EPRG-WP 1/2013, EPRG-WP 6/2013,  EPRG-WP 20/2013), included the research that has now been accepted for publication at JET.

For more on prof. Riella’s research please check his site at NYU or at his site at Ideas-RePec.

Starting with this post the EPRG will announce at the page “members highlights” our members’ achievements. Please check that page regularly.
