December 6, 2016
In December 2016, Oded Stark received from the East Asian Economic Review an Award for Excellence for his paper "Comparing the Global and Merged with the Local and Separate: On a Downside to the Integration of Regions and Nations" (Vol. 19, no. 4, pp. 325-355).
The paper can be downloaded from www.eaerweb.org
According to the Award Selection Committee: "The paper constructed a simple but original model that explains the negative aspects of globalization on the grounds that the social stress of an integrated population can be higher than the sum of the levels of social stress of the constituent populations when apart. The paper contributes not only to academics but also to policy makers that pursue regional integration in various forms." The award includes an honorarium of KRW 5,000,000.
To Professor Stark: our warmest congratulations!
