23rd Annual Meeting: “Reforming Cuba?”
August 1–3, 2013
The Hilton Miami Downtown Hotel
Miami, Florida 33132
ASCE had a record number of conference attendees from the island this year. George J. Borjas, Robert W. Scrivner Professor of Economics and Social Policy at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government gave the Ernesto Betancourt Keynote Address at our annual conference on August 1–3, 2013.
Professor Borjas’ work on labor economics and on the economic impact of immigration provoked an enlightening discussion among conference attendees. Professor Borjas’ participation at our gathering this year was particularly timely as Cuba and its diaspora study the impact of the migration law that recently took effect and as the US considers enacting its own immigration reform.
